If using dns you must specify the ip for the nameserver the name is not critical as long as the ip is there. You must also make sure to enable dns as your method of lookup.

Sure there is a file in /etc called nsswitch.conf (make sure when you install that you do not chose nis server as name resolving method) edit this file and where it says hosts add dns in front of the word files. This will tell it to use dns rather than the local hosts file (I think this file is called resolv.conf you might have to add your dns name and ip to this though. and include in your hosts file
