DHCP works for UNIX stations but not for Windows

I have a DHCP server installed at
I have a DNS server running a .lan domain at the same IP.

I have a web server at and an email server at 
both configured manually.

Only the Window stations get their data from the DHCP server.

When I try to browse www.wwlib.lan from a Windows Machine, I get nothing.
If I telnet the webserver at port 80 it just hangs, but if I telnet from 
  the Linux email server, it responds correctly. Yet, wget doesn't work!

Can someone help me, please ?

My dhcpd.conf relevant data follows my signature.

Warm Regards,
