Perhaps you mean /etc/resolv.conf?

I suspect so. We need to see if that file exists, what it's
permissions are, and what's in it.

You could use Konqueror, but I'll give you terminal instructions as
they are easier to type.

Alt-F2, type konsole
At the prompt, type
  ls -ahl /etc/resolv.conf
Please write down carefully the output.  It should look like this
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 51 2008-11-22 15:26 /etc/resolv.conf

If it does look like that, type
  cat /etc/resolv.conf
so we can see what's in it.
