How do I create a Linux DNS server into a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain?

I have an existing Windows 2008 R2 domain with DNS enabled.  I want to integrate a linux DNS server into the domain.  I want to keep my existing windows dns srver as well as have the linux DNS server, and I want both to read and write to each other.  I have an Ubuntu 11.04 server already setup with bind9 and webmin.  

How do I setup bind9 with my windows DNS?  Do I need to add mu Ubuntu server to the domain?  Do I need to install LDAP?  If so, how do I add Ubuntu to the domain and install LDAP?

You could do a zone transfer from the MS DNS server to the BIND server. Do you currently have them AD integrated? I'm not sure about going from BIND to MS.

I don't think so, how would I do that?

If you go into your zone on the MS DNS server, right click the zone and choose properties. It will have "type" which will say AD integrated or something else like primary/secondary zone.

In Windows you will need to right click the zone, then the zone transfer tab, then allow zone transfers to the IP of your BIND server.

On the BIND server I think you need to allow the IP of the MS server to transfer.

This will end up being one way, not bind to MS.
