DNS with private IPs

By curlergirl ·
This is for an in-house network with 5 workstations. We're moving up to Windows 2000 server from NT 4.0. We have not been using DNS internally on our NT 4.0 servers, only WINS. All DNS services have been provided by our ISP, and we are using private IP addresses internally (10.10.10.x), using a router with NAT to connect to the Internet. At the same time we're moving to 2K, we're also moving to a DSL internet connection using a modem rather than router. I know that you can use a Win2K server as a router and use it to do NAT, so I have two questions. Can anyone tell me how do I set this up and/or should I be using Proxy Server or is there some other choice with Win2K? Also, how do I configure DNS internally if I'm using private IP addresses? I know the answers might be complex, so any good sources or references will gain you the points as well. (And don't tell me I don't really have to set up DNS, because I want to use learn AD and in order to do that I have to set up DNS.)
