The thing in common here that is on the machines that work and is not on
the Linux machine is WINS.
A Windows machine can get any hostname that is on the WINS server
without using DNS.  Linux by default does not do that.

NOTE: I assume since this is a network that has several Windows
machines, that it is running with a Windows server and has WINS enabled.
