My ISP won't give me the IP addresses for their DNS servers. They say
they don't support Linux or static DNS? What can I do for name
resolution? Are there public DNS servers? Thanks for any help.

run DHCP and get the DNS from there.use A diffrent machine if you must. then
do a dig up on a address you know
example

the 68.48.0.6 is my DNS, or least one of them.


I forgot if your have a windows machine (say its not true) do a ipconfig
/all and that will have it listed as dns
