Resolving IP addresses?

I'm running RedHat Linux as a Server with 2 network cards. One network card is connected to the internet and the other is connected to a hub with my windows 2000 professional machines. Basically I'd like to surf the internet from my windows client machines.
I can view webpages by entering the IP address from my browser but when I try to give the URL, nothing shows up. Same thing when I ping. I can ping the IP address but I cannot ping the URL. What should I do to fix this?

Thanks guys!

You need to give tell your client machines what dns servers to use. You can either put this in manually or set up dhcp in RedHat to provide this info on boot.

In my client machines, I added my Redhat Linux 9 server address as the DNS server but they are still not able to resolve addresses. Could there be a problem with my dns configuration on Linux? I'm still pretty new to linux so I'm quite lost here!

Hi Odious1, you're suggestion about adding the DNS to the dhcpd.conf file worked! I added my ISP's address for the DNS and it worked without a hitch! Thanks a lot!
