Unless your IPCop box is assigned a dynamic IP address? In that case,
IIUC the DHCP server from the ISP/modem setup will provide the primary
and secondary servers. I know they can be overridden if you massage the
files though. But then if the ISP reassigns the servers' IP addresses
you'll have to massage again - after the angst of it not working and you
having to figure out that's what happened.
