Does your bind forward non-local queries to your ISP's nameserver?
You need a `forwarders' directive in /etc/bind/named.conf

Then make sure that /etc/resolv.conf on all your machines points to
the machine running bind. (Don't know how to do that in Windows --- if
you're using dhcp though, you can set it up in /etc/dhcpd.conf)

As for your webmin problem...  Have you set up reverse DNS?  depending
on how you've set up your web server, it may be looking at the IP
address of the query, doing a reverse lookup and not then getting
anything that's authorised.
