	Hm, well, I can't say that this makes much sense 
	[[ the netstat -rn ]].   

<tao> [418] netstat -rn

	The Gateway IP's are familiar.  

	I just ping'd the nameservers and they are all reachable
	(at 18:30 PST).

<tao> [440] cat resolv.conf

#  resolv.conf :: created on 18dec95

###nameserver 192.135.189.10  :: 03jan96

	Should netstat list the nameservers?  It looks like my
	net configuration  is missing _something_.  What, I
	don't know.... unless I am limited to only 2 nameservers.

	(??)  ...Thanks.

	*sigh*
