Surf by IP


hey there, guess it's been what? a year since my last visit...hmmm so what did i learn, lotsa things and now i'm currently administering a small network ran by a variety of distro's...got Kubuntu 5.10, Mandriva 10.0, Slackware 10.0, LormaLinux 5....now, they all work fine except for one teeny weeny problem...i installed LormaLinux 5 in this pc and i could ping all the computers in the network yet when i tried to ping a website it's unreachable but when i tried surfing by IP (and pinging it by IP) i could get out...i'm kinda' lost in here, the other pc's don't give me much of a problem except this one...need help...
