Netscape wont work

I have configured my linux comp to dial and logon to my ISP correctly. Now I somehow dont know what else to configure to be able to surf the internet using netscape. The netscape is unable to find a web server that I am trying to connect to.

The problem is you do not give Linux the ISP's DNS (Domain Name Service)

How to solve it?

1) If you are the guru, go to /etc/resolv.conf
2) If you are the newbie and use KDE: tell (edit) "kppp" the ISP's DNS.
3) If you are the newbie and don't use KDE, but use GNOME: tell (edit) "linuxconf" the ISP's DNS.

Note:
If my memory is good, the pppd (d = demon) in Peanut or Dragon Linux base on Slackware do not need to "tell" your Linux the ISP's DNS (like when you use Win 95 to connect to the ISP).

Bye now
