Your DNS is not correct on your linux box. Check /etc/resolv.conf and ensure you have a valid nameserver identified. If you need the IP's of your nameservers, look at the entries for DNS on your Win98 machine.

in your resolv file.. use this format

nameserver <~~IP of first server
nameserver <~~IP of second server

but without the <~~IP in the file.. etc..
