Problem in browsing local http sites


My problem is with accessing local http sites (LAN). I can access them using the IP address like

http ://
but I can't use the name like

http :// computer
In windows system, it works fine. but it doesn't with linux OpenSuse 10.1

This is the content of the file /etc/resolv.conf

# Modified_by:  NetworkManager
# Process:      /usr/bin/NetworkManager
# Process_id:   2799

nameserver 10.1*0.1.*
nameserver 10.1*0.3.*
it has the same DNS server as Windows ipconfig /all

Is there another way to make it automatically instead of adding each IP-Name to the hosts file ?
