nslookup on linux ???

I usually use solaris but Im working right now with a Linux box and I cannot find the nslookup command. Does Linux use this command or have an other one to do dns querys??

Thanks and sorry for such a dumb question.. Smilie

it is probably optionaly installed with your distro, i think that the nslookup and whois commands are being replaced by dig and host? im pretty sure thats what going on. check your system for 'dig' and 'host'
