Misc. Probs

Been working on getting all my toys running in Linux...have given up on
my TV card, as for some reason the i2c module wasn't installed
originally - and I haven't felt like recompiling quite yet...

But have had other issues -

1.  The box i'm running is sitting behind a windows gateway (NAT), and
linux keeps resolving it's nameserver as that gateway address - when in
fact i need it to resolve the ip addresses of my ISP's DNS as
nameservers.  But every time i reboot the machine (i'm dual booting with
win98 for some applications i still use over there) it trashes the
resolv.conf file and sticks with the NAT gateway as it's lone
nameserver.  i went as far as making resolve.conf readonly - but it
didn't help.  any ideas?

2.  Audio.  MP3, WAV, AIFF, etc, work fine, crystal clear on my SB Live!
BUT - Cd Audio doesn't work.  It works under windows, but not in linux.
the mixer has everything there a kernel module for CD audio
i should know about?  would it be presumptious to assume that it is
usually isntalled by default with the kernel anyhow?
