Or, just poke through the mountain of RPMs on the CD for the one with 'bind' in the name and unpack that.

thx for your co-operation..earlier the netconf server tasks portion had a DNS server configuration utility i remember...it seems linux 7.0 does not support that....this BIND utility is the new kid on the block..

I don't think that you are really looking for the BIND package. You don't want a DNS Server on your own but want to tell your computer to which DNS Servers it should connect when doing nameserver lookups, right?

May I direct you to the /etc/resolv.conf file which hosts this information. You can add multiple nameservers into this file, one on each line with it's IP-Address prefixed with the word nameserver. Let's take an exampe:
Code:
nameserver 192.168.1.10
nameserver 10.10.10.20
You will have to exchange those ip-addresses of course with those that your ISP provides to you.

Btw., there is no Linux 7.1!! What you mean is the distribution number - you must be refering to either RedHat or SuSE. Current versions of Linux are:
Code:
alfie@pinguin:~$ finger @finger.kernel.org
[zeus.kernel.org]
The latest stable version of the Linux kernel is:           2.4.17
The latest prepatch for the stable Linux kernel tree is:    2.4.18-pre7
The latest beta version of the Linux kernel is:             2.5.2
The latest prepatch for the beta Linux kernel tree is:      2.5.3-pre6
The latest 2.2 version of the Linux kernel is:              2.2.20
The latest prepatch for the 2.2 Linux kernel tree is:       2.2.21-pre2
The latest 2.0 version of the Linux kernel is:              2.0.39
The latest prepatch for the 2.0 Linux kernel tree is:       2.0.40-rc2
The latest -ac patch to the stable Linux kernels is:        2.4.18-pre7-ac1
The latest -dj patch to the beta Linux kernels is:          2.5.2-dj6
This distinction is very very important to keep in mind, for not going into misunderstandings.
