v8.2.5 installed on a different PC with all of the zones recreated.  The question I have
is the proper way to implement it.  All of our domain registrations with Network

the file.  Should I setup a CNAME to point to the old routermsm name
until we can make the appropriate changes on Network Solutions or does the name listed
even matter?  I will also be changing the secondary name server to a different IP address
on a different segment vs what it is currently (news @  Currently, there is no 
server even at that address.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
