 Date:  Tue, 8 Jul 2008 09:48:33 +0200
I did an upgrade to b12 yesterday, everything worked just fine except the
fact that I have to add the DNS server on the clients. DNS forwarding didnt
work for me.
Im using a Alix board and 2 Vista and 2 XP clients.

Its a small problem but still quite irritating,
