Question unresolved host - trying to connect


Hello,

I am new to wonderful Linux world (about 7 months).

I have SUSE 9.2

I have an external ISDN modem, reads it as Trust ISDN. I live in Italy.
The modem works when windows is loaded but everytime I try to go to a URL I receive "unresolved host 'web address' "

I apoligize about the lack of info but I am still new to Linux. I have learned quite a bit of UNIX commands (college) so I should understand where to go to make changes.

What does unresolved host mean?

Note: When at the library using a wireless pcmia card I have no problems connecting to the internet.

Thanks

Juan

sounds like you have no DNS... add your favourite DNS hosts to /etc/hosts
