Found a problem with --system_dns setting.

When I tried to scan an IP address on my network with just NMAP no parameters I got this error.

Starting Nmap 4.00 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap ) at 2006-02-01 15:52
GMT Standard Time
Unable to determine any DNS servers. Try using --system_dns or specify
valid servers with --dns_servers

When trying to use the --system_dns as instructed by the above error
message it still did not work and gave me the following error

Unknown long option (system_dns) given () #!$#$

After checking "Nmap --Help"  it says to use --system-dns not

After putting in --system-dns it works fine.

Using Windows 2000
