1) The archives of this newsgroup have LOTS of postings related to BIND

   saved W2k-related postings is now over 100,000 lines.

2) I suggest delegating the four "_" zones to a MS W2k DNS Server, and
   be sure that you have the latest dns.exe on that server.

3) Disable client self-registration either changing the TCP/IP 
   properties on the machine or via group a group policy.

then the zones can remain static (manual updates) on the BIND server,
and you can add any CNAME records you want.  Am I understanding your
