we install a linux server and a windowsXP client in a virtual box then we connect it through a internal network connection then we install dhcp and dns. My problem is i can ping each other through an ip address but I can't ping it through dns? what should I do?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Linux boxes don't respond to NetBIOS name resolution natively. Try the recommendations on this site and see if it helps. In short, you need samba and winbind.
