Re: Seem to be hitting a snag.

Take a look at /etc/resolv.conf.  It needs to have some lines
in it.  Mine looks like;

domain CRAY.COM
search cray.com sgi.com
nameserver 128.162.xx.xx
nameserver      128.162.xx.xx

Where the nameserver lines point to the ip address of the DNS host
or domain name server.  

Also take a look at your /etc/gateways file.  Mine looks like:

net default gateway 128.162.xx.xx metric 1

where the ip address points to the gateway here.

BTW, the "xx"  was really a 1 2 or 3 digit number less than 256
that was removed for security.  8^)  Don't try to use those exact 
entries, but substitue the ip address of your DNS host and gateway.
