yahoo gmail access problem in Fedora core 2

Hi,
I just installed Fedora core 2, and am having problem accessing my yahoo and gmail accounts. I am using Firefox 1.5. I am using College LAN to access the Internet. Surprisingly yahoo and gmail both work when accessed from Windows XP, I have asked the network administrator if he has blocked access , but this isn't so. I get the following message . "Server not found










Firefox can't find the server at login.yahoo.com.






* Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
The same thing happens when I try to access gmail. Can anyone please help? many thanks in advance,
Nomi

If there was a proxy blocking I believe it wouldn't work in Win XP either :-)
