Probs with Domain setup

By coyledavid ·
Using win 2K server. New install. Workgroup works fine. Trying to set up domain on home network with 3 clients. As I try to set up domain with chosen name, get this message:
"...condition caused by DNS lockup problem. Go to website:
...//go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=5171
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

A bit rusty with networks. Had no prob with my server on NT4. Didn't ask all these DNS questions! Can I make up a DNS address? I have a Broadband connection using the USB, but shows up as a network connection. It does not have a specific DNS setting, but the connection seems to be DHCP enabled. I don't think this has anyting to do with the Domain problem, however.
Thanks in advance if anyone can give me pointers as to how to set up a simple domain in this situation. Will look up that site in the meantime.
