Hi Michael.

What happen if you set up the dns in the /etc/resolv.conf?

I guess that maybe your problem is that the DCHP server is overwritting your 
resolv.conf, you might want to take a look at 
the: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX file and look at the line:

PEERDNS maybe you should try to set it to no:
PEERDNS=no
