Just a wild guess: How do you connect to the 'net? pon/poff or wvdial or ...? I always use pon/poff, and it seems that a script takes resolv.conf, copies it to resolv.conf.bak (or something alike), copies your /etc/ppp/resolv/provider to /etc/resolv.conf, and after poff it is removed and the original file is restored. Maybe this mechanism only works if /etc/resolv.conf is present? joerg -- Gib GATES keine Chance!
