Linux DNS Server & Windows XP Client


As the title states i have a "BIND" Linux DNS Server running for my internal network(Uni Project), the server is called fireblast. The network consists of two clients, Linux Machine called "client" and a Windows Machine called "windows". I have called the domain xxxxxx.blast, both the linux machine and the dns server can ping each other.

However, my Windows machine can ping fireblast.blast but the DNS server (fireblast) cannot ping the Windows machine. The response i am getting when i perform a ping is "searching windows.blast" But the windows machine is called Windows.

How can i change the Windows name to be windows.blast? Would this solve my problem?

I havent set up a Linux DNS Server before so new at this stuff. Some advise would be gratefull.

Thanks Rich
