Domain vs. IP on Internet

I got my mozilla working... not really.

i can go to an IP and i can ping ip's fine but putting in a url doesn't work

h t t p:\\w w o m doesn't work but
h t t p:\\IP ADDRESS HERE does

it's like it doens't know where to look to figure out what the ip is on that domain name... any idea on how to fix this? Thanks.
ps ignore the spaces it doesn't let me post urls yet cauz it thinks i'm a spammer

Look into your /etc/resolv.conf. The file should have a number of lines looking like the one below
where is DNS IP address. You probably have the IPs empty. Put your ISP DNS IPs into the file.
