First, thanks for the reply.
I forgot, this seemed to start all on it's own. I haven't installed anything or made any changes, Until about a week ago I had been checking my email and using this install solidly for about a year.
It looks like the name server IP's as returned by nslookup are already listed in /etc/resolv.conf.
Here's my resolv.conf file:
nameserver 188.8.131.52 #kppp temp entry
And not to sound too dumb, but I don't think
I'm using DHCP ... I'm on dialup. How do I check for sure, though?
Thanks again for your time...
