Windows XP remembers failed ("Unable to resolve" - DNS requests) entries for a few minutes. This can be very unpleasant when moving and debugging/developing web-sites. As long as that failed entry sits in your DNS cache, your box will continue to give you a "Unable to resolve" error. By cleaning out your DNS cache, you can fix this problem.
