Internet connection sharing with WinXP: DNS problem

Hi everybody.

My father has a Win XP box with a builtin DSL card (no linux driver available AFAIK, it's a Eicon Diva DSL). So the only possibility to get my Linux laptop connected to the net when I am at home is to let XP dial in and share the connection to my Linux box. I have tried the "Internet connection sharing wizard" (an awful thing) on Windows, and set the Win box as gateway in my eth0 config under linux. Now I can ping servers on the net with their IP adress, but I can not get the name resolution to work. I don't know which DNS server Windows uses, it is assigned dynamically wehn the connection is established, and I don't know how to get the adress...
Any idea how to make surfing the net possible with such a setup?
