Quite strange. The DNS client is installed and activated by default.
Nothing special to do but the configuration via /etc/resolv.conf

You may open a terminal window and type in the command
 nslookup

Ignore the deprecated message. You should then try
 server

The answer should be the same IP which you'll find in resolv.conf

Then you may ask for an address:
 www.duke.edu

and you should get the address 152.3.233.7 and 152.3.233.20 resp.

You may leave the programm by <ctrl><c>

Does this happen as described?

I got the correct ip back when i do nslookup server, but don't get anythinig from www.duke.edu. How do I make sure that dns client is on?

Then your issue isn't DNS. You probably set up your firewall to block web access. Run [redhat|system]-config-securitylevel (also in the
main menu under "System Settings->Security Level") and make sure
you have a checkmark next to HTTP in the "Trusted Services" section.
