Fw: Hostname problem

I've tried to use a LMHOSTS file using :
nmbd -H /ets/LMHOSTS -D
and changed the name resolve order to :
name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
I've also forced the Netbios name to linbox (in LMHOSTS and smb.conf) but it still says that s098 is not recognised !
So, I don't know what to do :(
As someone mentioned, it would be fine to be able to disable DNS lookup (which is useless since I use a LMHOSTS file)...
Otherwise, if anybody can tell me how to have the regular nslookup to recognise my linux box, I'd be very happy !

| The best bet would be to get your system set up properly so that
| nslookup CAN resolve your system name s098; I am not familiar with your os,
| so I can't really help you with that; but by default SAMBA will attempt to
| resolve the name via the lmhosts file before it tries dns/etc/host/nis, etc.
| So you MIGHT be able to resolve this via an entry into your lmhosts file
| (/usr/local/samba/lib/LMHOSTS). See page 224 of the "Using Samba" book by
| O'Reilly at the following url, or the man pages in SWAT for detailed info:
| Hope this helps,
