DNS- Windows Primary, bind secondary

I'm trying to set up a primary Windows DNS server(2000) and a secondary Linux(Redhat ES 4.0).
The Primary windows has following config
DNS points to itself
Primary Forward zone-
Primary Reverse zone-
Allow zone transfers is selected(w/bind secondaries) by servers listed in nameservers tab (the linux server is listed by FQDN) with the notify option enabled(by nameserver tab). Recursion is enabled and a forwarder is enabled. Dynamic updates are also enabled.

Can someone give me an example of a named.conf file that would pull both zones from the windows machine? I also have the network config set up(on the linux machine) as
Primary DNS-
Secondary DNS-
Search Path-

I believe the linux DNS server should also have recursion disabled and a forwarder pointing to the windows machine enabled, right? I'm getting confused with this. Help will be much appreciated.
