	add the following line in your ppp.conf to get the
	proper DNS servers from your ISP.

	enable dns

	check out 'man ppp' to get more info about it.

| Yahoooo!  Boy does it feel good to track down and
| solve this problem on my own!!!
| Here's what I did.  I copied the contents of
| /etc/ppp from my Linux partition to my Windows
| partition and then compared each corresponding
| file to it's freebsd counterpart.  And what I
| found was that my resolv.conf files were
| different - the DNS nameserver address had been
| changed under Linux!
| When I plugged in the new number, voila, FreeBSD
| connectivity problem solved.  
| I am so appreciative for the help, even though I
| managed to solve it on my own.  I googled it at a
| friend's suggestion and discovered a website
| giving the info to add, and that brought me to
| the idea to do what I did.
| Now to cvsup.  :)
