Some problems doing what with who now?

The only DNS related Windows thing I can think of is the obvious...
ISC DHCP doesn't support GSS-TSIG.  But this is easily worked around
by delegating a zone for dynamic updates to your Linux box, and doing
the updates locally, then slaving this updates-zone to your Windows
DNS servers.
