Make sure your ISP's nameserver is listed in /etc/resolv.conf

Should look something like this...

Can you ping any ip addresses on the net?  if so, try to run nslookup at the shell prompt.  If you can't resolve to an ip address with nslookup, then bughead1 is correct.  You are simply having dns problems.  But if you can't ping any ip addresses on the internet ( for example) then there are other issues such as the default gateway device could be incorrect.
Have you tried configuring your Internet access with the pppsetup script?

1. Ping, If you get a response then you have DNS    issues. If not then you have no network connectivity.

2. vi/etc/resolv.conf

   Add an entry

   nameserver     <IP Address of DNS Server>

3.  Note in the SuSE Distribution you edit


    Search for the string NAMESERVER

    i.e.  /NAMESERVER

    NAMESERVER = "<IP Address of DNS Server>"

4.  Now run the Browser /opt/netscape/netscape

    Have fun

but netscape is kind of unstable..
That's netscape for you -- one of the first things you usually have to do with Netscape is disable java under "edit".
