Question Connecting to the Internet

I am using RH 7.2 and trying to connect to the internet through a cable modem. According to my documentation, all I need to do is launch my web browser and I should connect but all I get are messages saying that this or that server cannot be found. Likely I am overlooking some simple setting but I am at a loss as to what it might be. Any suggestions are welcome.

Is your network card setup correctlly? If its not, then you wont get anywhere. If your card is set up correct then maybe your DNS settings are messed up.
