Ok, I've got a Linux box running as the server for my little home lan,
IP Masquerading, name server running, etc. I've had one Win95 box
connected in for quite a while, with no problems.
Then I hooked in my brother's IBM Thinkpad laptop computer. Set it up,
and hostname lookups weren't working. On the Linux box, I kicked named

Lookups that do not have a period, work fine.
Anyone else seen this? Know of a solution, or any help??
