Edit /etc/resolv.conf, and add

nameserver <- the ip address of your dns server

for every dns server that you have.
If you use dhcp and this info is not passed by the dhcp server, then edit /etc/sysconfig/network/config
and set
so you get to manually control the dns server list.

p.s. I believe Fedora provides some gui tools to do that kind of stuff, but i can't remeber the names of those tools. They're in the system administration section of the package list, and they're called redhat-something (sorry i can't remember, but manually editing the file is faster and IMHO simpler)
