Thanks Kai, that's great. How are we fixed for doing a make install over 
the top of what's already there?

What I'd like is the d3 as it was without the internal dns, but with the 
option of still having it at a different d level.

While we're here:
Afet battling with bind for too long, the forward and reverse zone seem 
to be working with internal.  I created a reverse zone and it injected 
the reverse record without me doing anything.  The xp client took its IP 
from a bog standard adsl router. Does this look correct?

hh3:/home/steve # samba-tool dns query marina14 ALL
Password for [Administrator at HH3.SITE]:
   Name=, Records=1, Children=0
     A: (flags=f0, serial=110, ttl=1200)

hh3:/home/steve # samba-tool dns query 23 ALL
Password for [Administrator at HH3.SITE]:
   Name=, Records=1, Children=0
     PTR: (flags=f0, serial=110, ttl=1200)

If so then wonderful! I'm just praying that my Linux clients will do the 

Just one last thing. Even though I have a ticket, it asks me for the 
password for every query??

Cheers and sorry to take so much of your time.
