On Fedora Core 2 what DNS server am I using?

I'm obtaining my ip information and DNS server from do I find out what DNS server my system will query? I know I can do a nslookup and see what it is or even a tcpdump and figure it out...but what command will just give it to me? Can't I cat some file or something? I've googled and found stuff about an /etc/resolve.conf file but it seems that my system does not have an /etc/resolve.conf file.....

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

Should be in /etc/resolv.conf (at least on debian it is). ([edit] err, I skipped reading the part where you said it's not there [/edit]) If not check the output of dig

demian@dirac: ~ $ dig
[lotsa stuff here]

Try looking for /etc/resolv.conf instead of /etc/resolve.conf I think you will find this file exists, try as root
 /]# vi etc/resolv.conf
