I think that your issue is that earlier in the 'manual/guide' it
instructed you to set up BIND (a local dns server) and thus host names
would resolve. You can skip that if you edit /etc/hosts and put each
computer's hostname into each computer's /etc/hosts file - which does
get to be a bit tedious after a point - thus, a local BIND setup makes

In other words, if you track through his guide and use Linux to set up
and provide dhcp/bind/etc. then you would have a fully functioning
network where host names resolve without having to do manual editing of
things like /etc/hosts or lmhosts (windows equivalent).
