Why is FQDN not found?

Why can I ping the hostname, but not the fully-qualified domain name of a box?
westk@westek:~$ ping k1000

I googled for this problem and found instructions to change 1 to 0 in the /etc/default/avahi-daemon file (after which I did a "sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart" command), but that didn't solve the problem (so I put the /etc/default/avahi-daemon file back to the way it was).
I have a MacBook running an up-to-date OS/X, and it can ping both the hostname and the FQDN (and it's resolv.conf file looks pretty much the same as the above), so it seems to be a problem in this Debian box (westek).
Praise Yah! \o/
