You just need to install the DNS server role and then point your client/servers to these machines. A workstation PC cannot act as a DNS server within windows. You need to add the DNS server role.

You want a PC as a DNS server? Not your Windows 2003 Server?
"Can we set up a few of ip/name as for DNS function in PC ?"

I am not sure what you're asking.  You want a few ip addresses or name (as in hostname?) for DNS function in a PC?  Sorry, not making sense.
