solaris 8 / netscape 4.76

I have an Ultra 5 machine with Solaris 8 installed as an operating system. To work with other PC's on my home network, I selected DHCP as the network protocol. I want to have Internet access on my Sun machine but have been unsuccessful. I had an old Netscape for Unix disk and installed it. The version is known as Netscape Communicator 4.76. It seems the browser is looking for DNS. When attemping to bring up the home page, netscape says, unable to locate server Other type of errors are:
The following hosts are unknown:

I reviewed a thread that was similar to my problem. It mentioned
to make an editor change to /etc/resolve.conf
This file doesn't exist on my machine. Also, the defaultrouter is defined
as I looked everywhere in Netscape but couldn't locate anything relating to DHCP. From a console window, I can ping I need advice on how to solve this problem.
