	Really?!?!?  As a former Lead Technical Support Rep. (I was one of the
first 20 techs on the helpdesk, and stayed there until Feb. 1997), I'm
AMAZED they said this.  You could always call up and ask to speak to a
Lead, or else I could refer you to a direct line.  That's ridiculous...
(Unless Bellsouth.net isn't outsourcing their helpdesk anymore to
Compaq/Digital)

As I recall:

Primary DNS: 205.152.0.20 (NS.ATL.BELLSOUTH.NET)
Secondary: 205.152.0.21  (Not so sure about this one)
