For W2K you need to create a resolv.conf file in system32/drivers/etc/
because Microsoft moved the location of the nameserver list in the
registry between WNT 4.0 and W2K and the work hasn't been done
to look for the new location.  This was documented in the readme that
comes with the NT binaries.

The format for this file is:
domain dwaalspoor.com

Change the list to suite your needs.
