It's easy: First allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on
WAN. Next, go to http://<your-m0n0-ip>/exec.php and just download the
file to your harddisk. Edit it with an editor and upload it again.
Afterwards you have to copy the file  from /tmp to /var/etc typing in
the following to the "Command:" text field (w/o the "Command:" prompt):

Command: cp /tmp/mpd.conf /var/etc/mpd.conf"

Afterwards you have to kill the running mpd process and restart it by
hand: Go to http://<your-m0n0-ip>/exec.php and type in the following to
the "Command:" text field:

Command: ps wax

Look for a line like this one:
   71  ??  Ss     1:06.21  /usr/local/sbin/mpd -b -d /var/etc
-p /var/run/mpd.pid pppoe

The first integer is the process number to kill:

Command: kill 71

Next restart it:

Command: /usr/local/sbin/mpd -b -d /var/etc -p /var/run/mpd.pid pppoe

If this is to hard for you, I can make a new image for you to play with.

mpd.conf is the one of the configuration files for PPPoE. Removing the
line will (hopefully) tell the mpd process to not ask your ISP for a
second DNS server.

No, but I does help us to understand what mpd does. With this
information we are able to write a bugfix. I'm not surem, if it is worth
it, because any ISP should provide you with at most two DNS servers.
