    yes ..and no...on DNS required

    With some ISPs you may need to add the DNS info manually, but with many (if not most) that is taken care of automatically. At one ISP in FL recently, we had to add DNS info manually, but here in TX (at this particular ISP) it is not necessary. I'm sending this msg from a POP where the DNS was NOT initially set up manually.
    Using:
    KPPP
    Mandrake 10.1 official
    external 56K modem

    BTW, although DNS info may not be required, adding the numbers for a good public DNS server may speed up your connection (google for public DNS). Some ISPs automatically connect you using a slow DNS. I have one here like that, and adding a good public DNS manually speeds things up dramatically.
