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 localhost.localdomain abc def ghi jkl
touch /etc/dhcp.eth0
touch /etc/notrouter
nameserver ***.***.***.***


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?
