setting default DNS search domain? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Sorry for this newbie question. My Red Hat box's networking seems to work just fine, except DNS lookup in the domain don't work unless the complete name is given. That is, my computer is a.cs.company.com. I want to do 'nslookup b' for b.cs.company.com, but this doesn't work. I have to type the full 'nslookup b.cs.company.com'. Can anyone tell me what I have change? Thanks for any help....
