The same you'd configure it if it was a member of a domain.

Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.

Right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.

Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.

Assign this server a static IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address. Enter the server's IP address in the Preferred DNS server box.

Click Advanced.

Click the DNS Tab.

Select "Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes"

Check "Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix"

Check "Register this connection's addresses in DNS". If this Windows 2000-based DNS server is on an intranet, it should only point to its own IP address for DNS; do not enter IP addresses for other DNS servers here. If this server needs to resolve names on the Internet, it should have a forwarder configured.

Click OK to close the Advanced TCP/IP Settings properties.

Click OK to accept the changes to your TCP/IP configuration.

Click OK to close the Local Area Connections properties.
