[NTISP] Evaluating NT 4, need DNS clues

Hi folks;
I just fired-up my first NT box and connected it to the existing FreeBSD
(Unix) based lan, during the install of the NT box I selected standalone
option, (because it will primarily be used for web based e-commerce
application). I would like the NT box to use the existing Unix DNS
server and I even edited my DNS config files and added host and reverse
DNS lookup info for the NT box ( I think I am making a blunder here ).
However NT can not be seen by my DNS server and the NT box does not see
the LAN (ping from NT to Unix vise versa fails). During network config.
for NT I selected 'domain' options but the NT box timedout looking for a
WINS server??? (and that's when I decided to ask for NT help).
I realy appreciate any pointers in the right directions or info on how
to integrate NT and Unix servers in the same network ( all they have to
share is DNS and the default gateway!).
