DNS not working? Does any of the client machines resolve proper

Try the following things on your windows clients:
1. Open up a command prompt
2. run nslookup
3. server 192.168... (the ip address of you samba and bind server,
can't remember, :D)
4. gmail.google.com
5. If the above resolves correctly, try the other machine names, like aman
6. Tell me what happens.

From Anar, they resolve:
-bash-3.00$ nslookup
Default server:

From a DOS window on a client pc it fails:
*** Can't find server name for address Non-existent domain
Default Server:  net0116008.direcpc.com

server anar
*** Can't find address for server anar: Non-existent domain
Server:  net0116008.direcpc.com

*** net0116008.direcpc.com can't find quit: Non-existent domain
