Oops...I missed replying to this one.
The key thing you're missing to get DNS
working is the dain-bramaged "name service
cache daemon" (nscd), which is controlled
Edit /etc/nsswitch.conf, and ensure that
the line which begins "hosts" contains the
word "dns" somewhere...our usual config
on systems that aren't using NIS/NIS+
hosts: dns files
Alternatively, you can turn off nscd entirely
and things Should Just Work (YMMV).
Hope this helps--
