Angry Bind Dns Issue??

I have a redhat 9 box installed to act as a Firewall router. I used firestarter for the tool to configure the firewall.

My problem is that I can ping from my windows workstations to the web only by ipaddress but not by domain name so I'm pretty sure about this being a DNS config problem.

Now when logged into the firewall I'm able to ping and other perfectly fine without any issue

Network Config on Firewall/router

ppp0: DSL connection

Dhcp Server listens only on eth0

I only want bind to act as forwarder. Pass all DNS request to my ISP DNS servers

Any info on this will greatly be apprieciated. Oh yeah one more thing this is a out of the box install of Redhat 9 with no updates

make sure firestarter is not blocking outgoing DNS traffic and incoming replies to your dns queries.
