There is no need to install DNS if you already have it on another server.

    DNS is required for 2008 active directory, but DNS does not need to be on every 2008 server. Microsoft has tried to be a multi-platorm Opertating system, so technically you can use DNS on Unix or other non-Microsoft server to run the supporting DNS for active directory. I worked on a Win2K online system that utilized only host files between the AD servers in the network. So the real requirement is for the AD servers to find each other.
