Question Installed CentOS, but cant resolve DNS

just installed it.

I have eth0 and eth1

both set to dhcp

eth0 is connected to my cable modem and gets a valid cox IPaddress.

eth1 is connected to my switch/router(not acting as a router just as switch and dhcp on the internal side) I get a valid 192 internal side address.

when I go to firefox it comes up and says cannot resolve
I cant nslookup anything. I am n00b so havent looked at resolve.conf yet,(at work ATM) but i assume it updated with cox DNS ip.

what could be causing this problem?

is there somewhere that I have to configure which interface is outbound(internet)??

ive been thinking,

does eth0 have to be the LAN nic
adn eth1 has to be WAN Nic ??

this may be my problem and if so easily fixed by swithcing lan cables.
