is nslookup installed by default?

I type nslookup in my freshly installed mandriva and I get nothing . I do a man nslookup and nothing. Is this installed by default. Maybe I uncheck it during install. How can I get this installed?

If your distro is RPM based, then yes.
[root@excelsior etc]# rpm -ql bind-utils | grep nslookup
