Append a dot ('.') to the name to tell 'nslookup' that it is an
absolute name, rather than a name relative to your domain.

	% nslookup mciworld.com.

To turn this off by default, some versions of 'nslookup' allow you to
enter "set nosearch" into a file ".nslookuprc" in your home directory.
But I see you're running a port to a proprietary operating system - I
don't know how that would work on MSW-NT.
