    /etc/resolve.conf is the file that you would setup your dns server in it should look something like this;

    Code:
    search <list of domains you want to use first when searching> <- if something is already here just leave it.
    nameserver <ISP DNS Server1>
    nameserver <ISP DNS Server2>
    nameserver <ISP DNS Server3>

    thanks a lot! I ended up finding the gui controls in the tab labled "DNS" in the network settings. I have no idea how i missed that one.
