I would recommmend two files which are to be examined
/etc/hosts would be one of them. On the line
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.
you should append /computername.domainname/ (let's say yahoo.uk) and
/computername. /. /Computername/ is either given to you by your ISP, or
you can choose one.
In my case, the line looks like
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost. Yoggy.rdslink.ro Yoggy.
Another file you should examine is /etc/resolv.conf, where you should have
where x.x.x.x stands for the DNS server IP address of your ISP provider.
Which error messages do you get? Can you be more specific?
