Default Problem with POSTFIX install - as per how-to

Hi All,

I am new to linux and following the postfix install how-to from this link:

After doing step 1, all seems to go well until I tryed to do step 2 (Apply Quota Patch To Postfix).

For step 2, When I try to enter the command:
apt-get install build-essential dpkg-dev fakeroot debhelper libdb4.2-dev...etc...

I get the following error msg:

Err http://ftp.us.debian.org stable/main Packages
Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Err http://ftp.us.debian.org stable/main Release
Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Err http://ftp.us.debian.org stable/main Sources
Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dist...86/Packages.gz Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dist...y-i386/Release Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dist...rce/Sources.gz Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.debian.org'
Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dist...source/Release Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.us.

After noticing the above errors I find that I can't do any apt-get update command. My source.list has not changed. Also, noticed that I can't ping any external or even my intenal IP address. When I tried to ping my local IP I get error:

mx1:~# ping
socket: No buffer space available

I am puzzled by why I would get the error "No buffer space available".

NOTE: I am doing this install on a VPS server using OpenVZ. Have not had a problem with this as I have other VPS server installed and running (DNS).
FYI: I running on a debian sarge install!

I trying to figure out if this is a VPS config issue or something with the how-to instructions.

Any help would be appreciated!
