NCSA Telnet is right :-)

With a little help of nslookup, I found that there is a domain ilstu.edu.

It contains the following subdomains:
> ls ilstu.edu
[rs6000.cmp.ilstu.edu]

 iugate                         129.79.1.9

So what does this mean? Basically, it proves that there is no domain called
bio.ilstu.edu. If there is no such domain, there will also be no host
called biolab.bio.ilstu.edu.

Bad luck.
