DNS Settings and indexing

Hi, I currently am running a series of websites from my hosting account, however i have noticed that one site is not being indexed very well by any of the search engines. When they have found it they have listed it without the www at the start of the address.  I have 2 questions:
1)should this make a difference in the site being indexed?
2)IS there a way i can edit the dns settings to make sure that the site is always seen with the www at the start.
Many Thanks

Hi Russ,
1. not so far as I'm aware
2. yes, see the bit on canonical hostnames at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/misc/rewriteguide.html
