Thanks to Phil and everyone else who replied to this!  Sorry for the
delay in my response. The house was hit by Lightning again (2X in 27
days, nothing before, in 6 1/2 years).  Online again.  :-)

I will try what has been suggested here and (hopefully) report back
that I solved the problem.

The ADSL Modem is the DHCP server.  I have an old Linksys
Router/Switch working as a Switch, to share the Internet. Both are set
to the OpenDNS IP addresses.

This box is dual boot (WinXP and CentOS) and the DNS changes held in
WinXP, so this is a matter of getting it configured properly,
manually, in the config file and not with the GUI...   :-)

Again, my thanks for each of you, for sharing your expertise!
