Basic networking setup in unix

I have a SunOS 5.8 box and have always downloaded & applied patches via my PC, but I want to be able to go out to sunsolve directly from the console ... however, I guess it doesn't know the IP of our domain's DNS server or something.

Where are these setting held on a Sun box???

/etc/resolv.conf
/etc/nsswitch.conf

Also if using a proxy server you'll need to deal with that also.
