So, we were previously running our website off of a 10 year old computer running NT4 (and not very well) we've recently moved the website to a Poweredge 1950 in preparation for expanding our websites capabilities.  Our previous web server sat in the DMZ on our firewall (172.16.50.3) The new web server has been assigned to (172.16.50.4) And given all the same other network configuration, (default gateway, DNS, etc..)

The Firewall (asa 5510) has been configured with the same exceptions and rules for this new server.

If I open up a browser and put in the IP of a known website (google) it goes directly to the page, yet it cannot resolve names (DNS issue)

The old web server had no problems with this, the new server is using the same DNS addresses, (Qwest Public DNS) and has the problem.

Any Ideas?

Is the DNS service active?
Can you ping a local computer by the computer's name?

So, you had to activate the DNS service?
