The latest XP retardedness...

My linux system and the windows system exist on the same subnet. Both can route through the gateway just fine. Both can ping the DNS servers. But my linux system can nslookup hosts just fine, the windows system times out and fails. No idea what. They are set up to point to the exact same DNS server.

This worked great prior to the upgrade to XP.

WTF?!?!?! Aren't things supposed to improve with upgrades?

"WTF?!?!?! Aren't things supposed to improve with upgrades?"

Yes, this is the general logic.

However this is XP we are talking about. The one operating system I refuse to install on my computers because I like them too much. The one operating system that put out a service pack to fix bugs that actually made the problem worse.

If I were you I would downgrade to win 2k and set fire to the XP disks. Let the healing begin
