Thanks Rowland, that's exactly what I need to get started.

The only thing unclear to me is what happens with additional DC's.  Do I
just set them up with BIND also and zone transfer from the DC whose DHCP ->
DNS is being updated, or does samba automagically distribute that
information by some other mechanism and I can leave the new DC's using the
internal DNS?

Again, thanks -- lee
