Set up DNS

Hi, after a long time I figured out to use my wireless under linux using ndiswrapper. I can connect to my own router en browse to everything but I still need to cofigure my DNS to acces the www. Only I don't know where I can setup my Primary and Secundary DNS adress.

Can anyone help me?

I'm using Fedora

While I don't know what GUI app is used by Fedora to edit the file, You can easily su to root and edit /etc/resolv.conf to read as follows:

search local

where the is the address of the primary and secondary DNS. Your provider will tell you what these are if you don't know.
