Help with DHCP setup


I am using Redhat 9.2 , trying to setup DHCP properly.

My problem is I can nslookup some machines but not others in the network, though I can ping them fine.

This is what i have done till now :

Lets say "abc" is my linux host and I have 3 other machines on the network, "def is solaris, and the last 2 are XP
----------------
/etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain
192.168.100.1 abc
192.168.100.2 def
192.168.100.3 ghi
192.168.100.4 jkl
-------------
/etc/hostname.eth0
abc
------------
touch /etc/dhcp.eth0
-----------
touch /etc/notrouter
------------
/etc/resolv.conf
domain earthlink.net
nameserver ***.***.***.***
----------

/etc/nsswitch.conf

hosts : files dns

---------------

I can nslookup 2 machines, one solaris and one windows, though I can ping them all. I cant nslookup myself ( abc from abc ).

What am I doing wrong?

Dave
