Replacing ms dns with bind9 is an better idea here is why:
1.It's really faster (noticed when i run first query on that machine and had lower latency)
2.Better security (windows2k is not supported with patches in future)
3.You can migrate easily to linux after that ;)
Download from isc.org unzip it and run the installer (bindinstaller.exe) from inside directory
Building A Debian DNS System
OK, this is the last DNS article... for a while, at least.
This article will show you how to build a complete DNS System with Debian. This includes a Master server, a Slave server, DDNS, and a bunch of DNSSEC. I'll be using BIND 9 for the server.

POORMANS RAID & CLONE SCRIPT
Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management)
This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.
ISP-Server Setup - Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
This is a detailed description about the steps to be taken to setup a Ubuntu based server (Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger) that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, Firewall, etc.).

This is a fairly basic intro to the usage of Netfilter Iptables. How-To was written on a Debian Sarge 3.1 box, though commands and syntax should work with any linux distro.

Automated Backups With rdiff-backup
This tutorial describes how to do automated server backups with the tool rdiff-backup. rdiff-backup lets you make backups over a network using SSH so that the data transfer is encrypted. The use of SSH makes rdiff-backup very secure because noone can read the data that is being transferred. rdiff-backup makes incremental backups, thus saving bandwidth.
Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV)
Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin,
This document describes how to install a mail server based on Postfix that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses.
