Sounds like your nameserver isn't configured properly.

What do you have in /etc/resolv.conf ?

Whatever address you have there, does it look correct ?

Some people will setup their nameserver in resolv.conf to point to their 
ISP nameserver.

I prefer to setup my own caching nameserver using named, part of the 
bind package.  Then, I set my resolv.conf entry to point to

If you are using your own nameserver, is named running ?

If you are using your ISP name server, is the address correct ?
