No. Sorry, I forgot to say that this is a static IP.

Can't resolve internal names. I have a local DNS server running on a
different host.

root@workhorse:/# nslookup laptop-600m

** server can't find laptop-600m: NXDOMAIN

What should happen:

C:\>nslookup laptop-600m
Server:  dim-win2300.dacrib.local

Name:    laptop-600m.DaCrib.local

(no laughing at the domain name :-))
