Thank you so much but need more help
Thank you (especially to tigershark) I've managed to set up the DNS server thanx to your directions in my other thread.
But I have problem still
When a client is set to workgroup or another domain and I try to join it into my new domain through network ID and network properties the client will find the domain and join in ... the dhcp from my server specifies the Server (192.168.0.1) as the gateway (haven't connected it to the net yet) and as name server and DNS server
the problem is that when i try to "look" at the domain from the client it will not find my "test" share ... when i try to do "nslookup" it will say that the name server (192.168.0.1) isn't aviable or non-existing domain)
the server is (for now) set to 127.0.0.1 to look at DNS and it will find itself fine but when i set it to 192.168.0.1 (which is static IP of server it will fail to find itself ... this is also the address where clients are supposed to find it....
anyideas... why can server find itself on loopback add. but not on it's accual ip (192.168.0.1)
client can find it on its accuall IP either but when can join the domain....

You sure you don't have another IP address using 192.168.0.1? Try this
1) Shutdown Server and try to ping with a client
2) If not working, unplug network cable in server and boot it
3) Change Server IP to something else like 192.168.0.4 (Be sure it's not use)
4) Be sure the scoop of address your DCHP server don't give this IP address way
5) Reboot server and try plug back network cable.
