You need to edit /etc/network/interfaces and reboot (you could go into taking the interface up and down, but rebooting is much simpler).

Just what needs to go in that file can almost certainly be found on Google with "Debian interface config" or something like that. It's really not that difficult, and # will comment out a line in the file so you can get the known working data back...

Here's a sample from one of my known working DMZ hosts:

Then, in /etc/resolv.conf, you need to enter the IP of a nameserver. Like this:

> nameserver
> domain slsware.dmz
