Slow Resolving Hostname in any browser

Anyone see this before? Where no matter what browser you use, it pauses anywhere from 30 seconds to a whole minute on "resolving hostname"? I tried everything I could think of: removing IPv6 support, setting up a static IPaddress rather than dhcp, etc..

Anyone else have this problem?

I'm running the unstable branch with the 2.6.8 kernel.

What's the output of "cat /etc/resolv.conf" on your box?
I think the fastest is to have your ISP's nameservers.
