Forcing DNS changes to take effect on Snow Leopard

I made a mistake while setting up the DNS on Linode. In order to flush the old DNS server settings. I had to run:

dscacheutil -flushcache

Then create a new zone with the right IP Address. Just ping the hostname to find the IP Address and check if it is correct by comparing it to the Linode dashboard.
