That domain is working fine from here.

First, assuming the G4 is running Mac OS X, Mac OS X
can do some caching behind your back.  It has annoyed
the heck out of me on multiple occasions when testing
server transitions.  There's probably a better way to flush
its cache, but I'm pretty sure rebooting should do the trick.

It could also be that your Mac is doing DHCP from the
Linksys router and that the router may be acting as
a caching DNS server.  I've seen such things before.
One way to clear its cache is to power cycle the router,
though that might give you a different IP number and
cause other issues.

If your system is configured in that way, it is probably
best to configure the Mac OS X box to run a caching-only
BIND and in the Network preferences pane, set the
