Use the named-bootconf script that's bundled with BIND8. It converts a
named.boot file to its named.conf equivalent. You'll probably have to
run this on a UNIX system => transferring the named.boot file from
your NT box to the UNIX system, creating the named.conf file there and
copying that back to your NT box.
