Jason,

Your cable provider should be providing you with the address(es) of its
DNS servers when DHCP runs to get your IP address.  Verify that
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (if that's your I/F to your
cable modem) does not contain a PEERDNS entry.  Also verify with
system-config-network that DHCP is selected and that nothing is entered
in the DHCP setting section of the configuration dialog.

At least this is how my DSL/ethernet interface is configured and my DNS
entries are setup vis DHCP.

If you have a router between your cable modem and your linux box, it,
too, should be set up to pass DNS information to its clients.
