Changing the ISP


Our company is planning to change our ISP, now
my question what are the possible changes that i should
make on my linux box? I have two servers the mail server
and proxy server. The first is Red Hat 5.2 and the latter is
Red Hat 7.0.
Also we have some dial ins via our Cisco 2511 router
coz some of our employees are accessing the internet
on their homes.

If you are changing protocols there might be a significant number of changes. However, if you were using, say, DHCP before, and simply 'plugged in' then really there won't be much to the change assuming you stick with the DHCP with the new provider. Really, it depends on how/what things will change as far as you connecting to the ISP.
