(DHCP does not return just an IP address but >also a bunch of other info such as subnet mask and DNS servers.) Yes. When I checked the network configuration for eth0, the 2 IP addresses for their DNS servers that I'd entered, had been changed, to 192.168.1.1, the IP of the ADSL Router. >The router just forwards DNS requests it gets on to the real DNS >servers (it found out those when it itself connected to the ISP)..

I will change that in the other boxes (also dual boot), after I have the Firewall/Router box up and running. When I did ifconfig -a it came back with inet addr 192.168.1.10 Bcast 192.168.1.255 and Mask 255.255.255.0 When I did nslookup 192.168.1.10 it came back with server 192.168.1.1 Address 192.168.1.1#53 and ** Server can't find 10.1.168.192.in.addr.arpa NXDOMAIN I downloaded the lastest versions of Devil-Linux and IPCop this morning. I think I will try IPCop first, because it can be headless and has a lot of documentation and other features I like. Devil-Linux does not require a hard drive, which I believe would be better for security.
