DNS adress for a DHCP client ?


I have 2 systems on my LAN: 1 firewal-router and 1 client.
the firewall-router has 2 NICs:
eth0 facing the internet and receives its IP adress via DHCP from my ISP videotron.ca
I set the firewall via Mandrake control center->Network & internet->Internet connection sharing.
The firewall get its 3 DNS adress automatically from the ISP, these DNS adresses are dynamics ( I suppose Videotron has a bunch of DNS servers )
eth1, facing my LAN has its IP adress automatically set to 192.168.1.1

The client has eth0 and I configure it to have its IP adress via DHCP from the firewall

Question: How do I transfer , broadcast these 3 dynamic DNS adresses on my client ?
When asked to enter the DNS adress on my client, do I set it to the gateway of my router ? ( 192.168.1.1 )

I run Mandrake10.1 community

Hmm sounding odd if your ISP is having several DNS servers and that you should have any use for the info from them on your client side.

Anyway, do you have any problems accessing internet from your client computer?
DNS settings you are using for your client should be enough.

Thanks to both of you for taking some of your time to reply.
First, it looks I was confused when installing Mandrake10.1 during the configuration of the NICs.
I enterd my own private NAT domain name when I should have entered an official FQDN or nothing at all.
I reinstalled the server and now the server and clients get the proper IP adress od my ISP ( videotron ) on their /etc/resolv files.
What just puzzles me is that in my server /etc/dhcpd.conf , the domain name is not the one of Videotron ,but an unknown domain to me, something.net. I'll have to investigate that further. I hope I haven't been hacked
Your replies at least gave me a good idea of the DHCP commands and config files ( both server and clients ) I have to look at.
At least now I know where my client gets its DNS adresses from.
