Good Eve,

This past week my Aliant connection has been spotty, and finally last 
night I had some time to investigate. Seems that the connection is 
good, and I can successfully ping by IP, but that name resolution is up 
and down. Don't know what others have to say, but until recently this 
past week or so things have been good. So my solution is to take a 
desktop machine on FC4 and to set up caching bind, and alter the 
linksys router to use this machine as the first DNS entry, then the 

I'm unable to determine from what tools I know how to check that the 
new resolver settings are being transferred by DHCP to clients. Can 
anyone help out?
