foward dns requests ?


ive currently got a linux box with a wifi card and a standard ethernet card

ive got a pptp connection to my isp via the wifi card ( ra0) and i want to share out the internet through eth0 to a few other computers ( possibly a wireless router ) but for now ive got another computer(Computer B) connected via eth0 and a hub

the internet works fine on the server and i think ive the ip masq ok because i can ping internet addresses from computer B so its doing nat ok i think but i cant resolve anything from computer B, i know if i set the dns on computer B to my isps dns server it will probebly work but i was wandering if there was any way to set it up so the main computer would foward the dns requests or something ?

can anyone help ?
