This might help as well:

-n (No DNS resolution)

    Tells Nmap to never do reverse DNS resolution on the active IP
addresses it finds. Since DNS is often slow, this speeds things up.

What command are you using to start Nmap?

Since you don't have a DNS server, then you obviously cannot specify the
other host by DNS name.  If you aren't, it might be possible that there
is a bug in Nmap which tries to access DNS servers even when it doesn't
have to.

Hi.
I have complied Nmap4.01 successfully.

But i'm hit with another error
=========
Starting Nmap 4.01 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2006-03-21 05:55 SGT
Warning: File ./nmap-services exists, but Nmap is using
/usr/local/share/nmap/nmap-services for security and consistency reasons.
set NMAPDIR=. to give priority to files in your local directory (may affect
the other data files too).
Unable to determine any DNS servers. Try using --system-dns or specify valid
servers with --dns_servers
QUITTING!
=========

My setup is simple.  No DNS servers here.  Just 2 boxes connected by a cross
cable.  Have tested connectivity ok.

I'm not very familiar with linux, just a security consultant wanting to work
on NMAP on linux.
Can you give me some advice on the error mesg?

Thank you once again.
