My Own Dns Server
I run a small network and depend on an overloaded DNS server at a remote site. Locally , all we do is browse the internet , but we are normal shut off the dns server when traffic gets too heavy . I would like to improve up time here by setting up a DNS server (that could resolve "mail.yahoo.com" for example ) as an alternative.
We run an all windows network and with just 6 clients .
I have heard about caching only nameservers , free dns servers , etc but am not quite sure or do not fully understand setting it up .
Any help will be appreciated.

DNS on 2000 is quite easy to install and get going. You just have to run a wizard and it does most of the work for you.
