if you have your linux box set up for dhcp (automatically obtain an
address), for most adsl setups from any isp, the speedstream is set to
be the dns server and the dhcp server--it will give your linux box an ip
address and it will also set the dns servers in /etc/resolv.conf

the /etc/hosts file is where your hostname resides, and other hostnames
can be added, but you shouldn't need to touch this file.
