You will need to delete the root zone on the Win2k DNS server before you can enable forwarding.
If the client still cannot resolve a name, try flushing the DNS resolver cache using "ipconfig /flushdns."
If the client still cannot resolve a name, make sure you do not have firewall software or some other kind of blocking program running on the Win2k server. Also, make sure you have not enabled packet filtering.
