Thank you very much for the reply and also for looking up our nameserver...I
tried to find out  this numbers but I was told that our ISP dynamically
provides us this numbers...So, if I will be using the nameserver that can be
found in our Server Machine...when it disconnects...it will use a new
nameserver dynamically provided by our ISP...That is what I was told...

I just received an Email from the Mailing List advicing me to create a
/etc/resolv.conf...
He was also kind enough to provide me our DNS...
domain oisca.org
nameserver 164.46.1.1
nameserver 211.10.162.68

I created a /etc/resolv.conf with this one as what you have suggested
When my system starts:
The booting process halts for a few minutes saying
"continuing vi sessions:"
and then boots and starts gdm...
after gdm starts, I can log in but I can use my built-in mouse...
after logging in...it halts for a few minutes before I can use my built-in
mouse...
when i invoked this command:
# host freebsd.org
halts for a few minutes to read and then...
#host not found, try again

Any suggestions on what happened...
I would really appreciate it....Thank you...
