Hi Mastic Zan,

This is normal: as the dns can't find the LAN adresses from root servers
(of course :)) it *must* have them in a file, so called /etc/hosts, which
contains the relation between the names and the IPs adresses; 
*AND* have records in it configuration files (in /var/named), in order
to know who is qualified to ask it for DNS queries.

So, if you changed the IP of your machine, you also have to change the content
of /etc/hosts, and the DNS records.
