bleh pat, you should know better than to use that win2k stuff. not
sure how to do it with win2k but i know how to do it with bind! you
need to set up what is called a split DNS, so you'll need to set the
machine as the primary and only DNS server for your clients, make sure
you are set up as a cache only set up, and preload the records you
want in the cache with a large ttl. you can do a more sophisticated
system if you know how to munge SOA records etc and export certain
domains to certain interfaces/addresses, but i doubt win2k's DNS
server could handle that.
