Uhh, this is a wrong answer. There are different kinds of DNS servers,
and just because a server is authoritative for bellsouth.net does not
mean that it will answer queries willy-nilly.
You can always use MindSpring's DNS servers, even if you're dialed into
bs.net. Put the following in your resolv.conf:
While you're at it, switch your service over. MindSpring has a howto
page explaining how to set up your Linux box to work with out service,
and an active Linux users newsgroup. 8^)
