    dns or something on fedora4

    Linux question:
    I am looking to specify the dns servers given to me by my ISP. On a windows maching, I go to network connections, my connection, properties, tcp/ip, properties, then fill thoose feilds out. But on linux there are no lines for the dns servers like at the bottom of the box in windows. Anybody know where I can put thoose in on linux?

    You can supply all of that under the network configuration tool. If you are using gnome you would see it under Desktop/System Settings/Network. I don't remember what KDE has for a network config GUI.

    If you want to open the GUI from the command line then it's system-config-network. Or are you not using any desktop environments and only using command prompt? If so that's just sadistic. In that case you are looking in /etc/resolv.conf That is where the nameservers are specified.
