Adding a linux machine to WinXP network - DNS problem or what?

Im trying to connect computer with mandriva installed to an existing win XP based network. It all works well up to the point when i want to use the internet.
I can ping all the computers in the network,
I can ping any web address, say www_google_com
and it resolves IP just fine
but when I type the same address in firefox it just cant connect - typing IP in works though

any ideas? - we had the same problem with ubuntu....

What does your /etc/resolv.conf look like?
