Did you change the configuration file to try and fix this problem, or
did the problem occur after you changed it?  You might want to post us
the entire configuration file.

To be sure, did you really type in "Nameserver" rather than
"ServerName"?  And what was the address after it, ""?

In this case, hostname and IP must resolve against each other, or you'll
get strange problems.

Usually, things will work fine without any ServerName declaration, and
with "UseCanonicalName Off".

As someone else said, what's your /etc/hosts file like?

I'm not using FC8, but I'd heard a similar tale about someone using FC7
or FC6 (I can't remember which, now).  They had an issue with their
hosts file not being what's considered normal.

It should start like this, without any other host or domain names on
those two lines, and can have *other* addresses, as well, separately.       localhost.localdomain   localhost
::1     localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

Just don't have conflicting duplicates.  i.e. Don't have the same
hostname referring to two different IPs, or vice versa.

Read "man hosts" to understand how the file's used.

[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
