FC4 - DHCP fails to get DNS

Hi, I have a small network behind a Netgear RO318 which acts as DHCP server. I was running FC2 and all worked well. I just upgraded to FC4 and now DHCP will give me an IP address but not DNS. There is no /etc/resolv.conf file. (Does DHCP create this file on the fly?) I can ping an IP address 'ping 64.233.167.99', but this fails 'ping google.com'. Here is my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:

# Intel Corp.|82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
DEVICE=eth0
HWADDR=00:03:47:06:A6:76
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no
IPV6INIT=no
BOOTPROTO=dhcp

All other computers on the network have no problem. My Fedora machine is setup as a server so I have no GUI interface.

Thanks

What dhcp client does it use pump, dhclient, dhcpcd, etc.?  Some may put it in /etc/<dhcp client dir>/resolv.conf and create a symbolic link, or possibly under /var/run.  You may just need to create a symbolic link to the actual file.  Upgrades can sometimes forget to do things like this.

The only resolv.conf on my system is: /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/resolv.conf. It is empty and has an older time and date.

Run the netwotk device controll tool and use that to try to setup your nic again.

It appears that only the GUI tool and not the text based one would allow me to enter the IP of the DHCP server.
Thanks.
