You mean, by name, don't you?
You can ping them using their IPs, can't you ?

Is named running?

Sometimes, when configuring a DNS, we humans make mistakes.
Are you absolutely sure your DNS tables are correctly written?
To verify everything is alright, you can do:

	# killall -HUP named
	# tail /var/log/messages

you must see something like this:

May 20 00:36:43 Isabeau named[30684]: reloading nameserver
May 20 00:36:43 Isabeau named[30684]: Ready to answer queries.

Isabeau is the name of my DNS.

Hope it helps.
