will this fix the problem i'm having with dhcp clients not being able to
resolve names through dns forwarding to the m0n0?  the only way i can get
it to work, with my pppoe wan, is if i define static dns servers in
system.php, despite the fact that my isp assings dns servers through

if this will in fact fix this problem, could you please post how to ticke
ppp-linkup in the proper way?  i'd like to apply the changes to my own

many thanks,
