Hooray, Solved.
Rico, your question about nsswitch.conf was the key. I printed out the file
from another computer and found that the "hosts:" line was missing "dns and
mdns4'. I added these to the end of the line and everything now works fine.
I can't thank all of you enough for your support.

I could be wrong but I think you mean "mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return]"
was missing.

No. The particular line reads:
"hosts:  files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4"
It works!

Didn't mean to slight anyone with the thanks. I know that this was somewhat of a community effort. So thanks to all.
