I have a Linux based firewall (Firebox x1000).  I also have my webserver set up in the DMZ.  I cannot access if internally without using its private IP address.  Firebox support tells me I need to do something with lmhosts file in order to connect to the web server using its FQDN.

What do I need to do and how do I do it?

You've got two choices here and which is best depends on how many inside clients you have. The simple solution is to create a hosts file record on each internal client that equates the FQDN of your web server to its private IP. For a limited number of internal clients that is a manageable solution. The more complex solution is to set up a private DNS server that equates inside hostnames to private IP's.
