Except: I'm assigning static IP addresses (i.e. no DHCP) and I'm not 
using bind9 on the DC, I'm using the Samba built in DNS server.

I don't mind adding the PTR records by hand, but have no idea how to do 
this. On my servers running bind, I just update the zone files, but in 
AD everything is in a database.
