If you need only to tell your system which DNS to use, edit the file /etc/resolv.conf and put two lines:

search subdomain.your-domain.com your-domain.com
nameserver nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn

Second line is important: put the IP address of the DNS server of your provider.

Don't know if is only this information you are searching, so I am posting as a comment. Let me know if you need more detail or if it is ok.

fmismetti is right but here is how it goes:
# vi /etc/resolv.conf
search domainname.of.isp's.dnsserver
nameserver ip.address.of.nameserver

for instance i am at otenet i have configured:
search ns1.otenet.gr
domainname 190.150.0.2

so easy...

Well....I simply can't connect to the Internet: my modem dials the number,then there's a long pause & the connection breaks. How can I set up the dial-up connection properly?
Thanx

Well, your question is a little bit more complex.

Look in /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs for a text file named "ISP-Hookup-HOWTO". If you don't have this text, search in the SunSite ftp site (host name: sunsite.unc.edu, folder /pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO.

Good luck.
