Does your SCO has the file /etc/resolv.conf ?
If so, just add:
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
where xxx is the IP address of your WinNT DNS Server.
If not just create it and add the above line on. I'm not sure about SCO's specific config, but on most Unix /etc/resolv.conf is used to configure the DNS server to query.

nothing is right. rina, you can use "man named" to find the particular configuration file in your machine. maybe is /etc/named.conf. and the named also get a parameter to set the configuration file name.

You should also check to see if you have a file /etc/nsswitch.conf.  If so, make sure that the "hosts:" line reads like this:

hosts:      dns files

 The comments above nearly cover the whole thing ... do this :

  In the fragments below, change 'newcastle.edu.au' for your own domain, and 134.148.24.1 and 134.148.24.3 for your own DNS server IP addresses ...

1/ Edit /etc/resolv.conf to read like so -

domain newcastle.edu.au
nameserver 134.148.24.1
nameserver 134.148.24.3

2/ If you have a file /etc/nsswitch.conf, make sure it uses dns

3/ Edit /etc/named.boot to read

forwarders 134.148.24.1 134.148.24.3

Edit file /etc/resolv.conf
domain <your domainname>
nameserver <ip address of your NT DNS server>

After edit that file, if you want to test your configuration
run /usr/sbin/nslookup
