internet connection problem


Just got a new box yesterday with redhat ES 3 installed. Set everything up today, and configured the network settings in the startx gui. I can reach all other computers on the lan perfectly fine, but when I try to connect to the internet using the mozzilla browser, i get error messages that it cant find the addresses that I type in. I have NAT to the linux box.

I can not figure out what I did wrong or forgot to/did not do.

Can anyone help me?

thanks in advance

What does it say in /etc/resolv.conf? There should be the address of your ISP's domain name servers. Mine looks like this
Code:
nameserver 195.92.195.94
nameserver 195.92.195.95
To find out your ISP's nameservers ask Google to show you web pages that contain your ISP's name and the word nameserver
