Workgroup DNS Resolution

3 Computers with 2K, one acting as a server
P2P/Workgroup network setup

Server computer changed its IP, not its name, now other computers will not resolve the new address.
OLD ADDRESS: 192.168.0.4
NEW ADDRESS: 192.168.0.2

On the other computers on the network, "nslookup server" retruns "192.168.0.4", not "192.168.0.2".  I've already tried stopping/starting the DNS Client and Computer Browser services with no luck.  Also tried chaning the workgroup name, rebooting, and changing it back with no luck.  Any other ideas?

Are they manually specified in the hosts file? I believe 2000 stores it in the same location as XP
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Edit this file with notepad. if there are entries in there for the old address remove them or update them with the new address.
