I checked that first.  A lot of them either were not using
the internal DNS server and needed to ipconfig /release &
renew and/or arp -d.  I had them delete cookies, etc... 
Restart.  After all of that, when an offsite person still
had problems, I had them ping it to see what it resolved
to.  When it resolved to the old address, I assumed the
ISP's DNS was out of date.  

Q: Is the fact that I have a place holder in the old
address (doing a meta-redirect) causing this to persist
longer than necessary?
