When a user logs into my dialin PC, they are automatically assigned a gateway address.
I want to do the same with the DNS server(s) so I don't have to go through the installation of setting this
part up.

Using linux 2.0.33 and pppd with shadowd password with AUTOPPP installed.

Please clarify your question. Do you wish to

1. automatically assign a hostname to your users when they login?
2. have your server set up its gateway when it boots up?

or something else? More details please...

neither!

when a user runs pppd they get auto assigned the Gateway so they don't have to specify one in windows 95.. however they need to setup the name server because it's not automatic..

I want to MAKE it automatic

Okay. Add

dns-addr 123.45.67.1 dns-addr 123.45.67.2

to your pppd options, using your primary and secondary DNS IP addresses, respectively.
