Simplest solution is to get just like the relpy before mine, a Windows 2000 server or Windows 2003 server. They have very simple wizards to "Manage your server" and you'll have a fully functional DNS server within a few mouse clicks OR the other option is to go for linux. There are many advantages with linux, the most common one is it is FREE! meaning no licenses required and all that stuff. Also when you configure your linux DNS server you will have control over absolutely every small little detail and only configure what you need. Now disadvantages are that you'll have to google around for some "HOW TO's" on setting up a dns server.

take care.
