windows 2003 DNS and Linux DNS

  2bneat 06:51 18 May 2008

Hi I need some help here. I have a Linux ReadHat working as primary DNS and is working fine. I need to put a windows 2003 as secondary DNS but they are not talking.
Now I created the win2003 as reguler server with DNS service, this is secondary,requesting transfer zone from the master server ( linux I guess) and is in a workgroup.
The Internet domain name for us is:

Should I need to create the windows 2003 with AD and give this domain name? should it be configured static or dynamic DNS?

The two computers see each other, ping eahc other but do not want to do zone transfers.
seems that is not so easy to mix two deifferent systems. I do not what more to do.
Thanks before hand to any help I get

Well I do not know what happend here, but I do not see my previous post.
RECAP, I just want to that thank you for your response. Unfortunally it did not help me to much and after working for almost a week on this project I am ready to stopped it. It is really hard to make windows talk to linux.
Even that I would like to leave alone the Linux server and better yet to install a secondary linux DNS, the people here wants to have windows so I will continue looking around to solve this problem.
