if you want to lookup DNS names you must use nslookup on windows and
not ping. if you are using the ping comand, your workstation name
will always be resolved as at least if using the ping
comand try using a FDQN (your workstation name + your domain name).

if you still want to use the more simple syntax of ...

  -> ping [my workstation name]

... you can try to add the following entry to ...

  -> $WINDIR\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

------8<-----------8<----------8<------------8<-----------	foo
# ^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^    ^^^^
#      (1)           (2)         (3)
# 1) your IP address.
# 2) your workstation- + domainname.
# 3) your workstation name.


i've tested all of the above examples on my w2k machine.
