Connection made but Netscape will not resolv

I just installed Mandrake 6.5 and am trying to connect to my ISP.  I make the connection fine but netscape will not resolve anything.   I edited the /etc/resolv.conf file, the /etc/host.conf file, used kppp, and edited /etc/nsswitch.  Any further guidance would be much appreciated!!!

run the command:

nslookup

from a shell prompt.  When prompted, enter a valid url such as www.experts-exchange.com and see if it resolves to an ip address.  If not, you still have DNS setup problems.  If it does, it is a Netscape problem.

Thanks for the help.  The real problem was with my dns server.  It was down for a real long time.
