I am in the process of upgrading my home network from a dial-up to
broadband account. The only choice that I have for a broadband account is
Mediacom in central Iowa. Now my hub computer (a rh 8.0 box) can connect
to mediacom, but mediacom announces the dns address at connect time. The
hub computer has the address somewhere, but the client boxes
don't. Therefore none of my client boxes can reach the web, because they
don't know what the current dns address is. My client machines are as
follows:

1. WinXP
2. Fedora Core 1
3. Win-ME (via Win4lin)
4. Win-98

I am assuming that I am going to have to set up a dns server on the rh 8.0
box, but I don't have the faintest idea how and what kind of script will
be necessary.
