I don't know if that works, because now I'm not abble to just use wget or

I get this message with wget:
root@hurd:~# wget http://www.debian.org
--14:16:04--  http://www.debian.org/
           => `index.html'
Connecting to www.debian.org:80... 
www.debian.org: Host not found.

and it's the same thing with lynx.

I think there's something wrong in my config, and I don't know what.
But my modem works well, I can connect to my ISP (I got a PPP> login,
and I can't connect with a wrong authname or authkey), and the 
/etc/services seems up to date.

So, if someone can help me...


Note: maybe those problems are less importants than others, so tell me...
