My apologies for the off-topic question but I need a quick answer and
figured someone here would know.

I'm at a client's site setting up a Linux dial-on-demand router and all's
well for the most part.... They have a Sun E450 running Solaris 2.6 that
they want to be able to access the 'Net as well. The problem is that I know
almost nothing about Solaris and they can't find any manuals so I'm pretty
much stuck with man pages....

I've figured out how to specify a default gateway, so I'm now able to ping
external hosts. My problem now is how to configure name resolution. (i.e.
setting up Linux's equivalent: /etc/resolv.conf.) The only thing I've been
able to find so far is a few notes on how to configure the system to be a
DNS server; however, that's not what I want. I just want to be able to
specify a host that the system can use for name resolution.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated. (i.e. pointers to man pages
I should rtfm, etc....)
