Logging on to the domain taking too long

I have a network for 15 systems connected to a local domain running on Windows 2000 server. The clients are Win 2000 Pro and Win XP Pro. I connect to outer DNS for the Internet, so logging on to the domain is very slow. It takes more than 10 to 15 min for the process. What should I do to solve this problem?
You can configure your local 2000 server as an internal DNS server that your clients can point to for internal authentication and logons. By configuring the 2000 server to forward requests to your ISP's DNS server, your clients will still be able to perform name resolution on the Internet.
