Default Noob with ?'s

Hi All,

I am 4 days new to Ubuntu and I have installed Falko's Perfect Server with ISPConfig 3. I also installed the desktop. I have a ton of questions and am not sure where to begin. I am pretty much ignorant in CLI-world, but am a fast learner.

So, everything up to the end of the Perfect Server instructions works. I set /etc/network/interfaces for my two ethernet ports thus (I totally guessed at this):
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
network 192.168.x.x
broadcast 192.168.x.255
gateway 192.168.x.1

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static

Ultimately I set the a-record (and mx records) with the domain seller and was able to "see" the server at all local and public ip's and domain name. However, during initial setup I forgot to change the "dhcp" to "static" in the file and was confused as to why I wasn't able to ssh to the server on the ip address. So I tried setting it via the desktop and was able to ssh. I later discovered my mistake and amended dhcp to static. The weird thing is I went back and deleted the ip settings in the desktop network connections and the server still has the same local ip and I can see locally, but Firefox in the desktop won't connect to any webpages and I can't access it remotely either via ip or domain name.

Is this because i haven't set up DNS on the server?

I have more questions, but more later.

thanks in advance for any help.
