ifconfig and route problems continue

I have discovered another interesting tidbit regarding my installation
problems. I run a small local network of five machines. One of them
is a trusty 486/100 that has been in the family for decades. It runs
GNU/Linux...and the local nameserver. Because I like to e-mail people
outside of this little network, the name server references a cache of
Interic nameservers. However, this cache in available only while I am
linked to the net via ppp. This connectivity coincides with the Alpha
booting properly. Aha.

The 486 doesn't have problems booting under the same circumstances,
but it does not use a Redhat distribution. (Though it is up to date
w/software and kernel v2.0.24.)

Anyone from RedHat have an inkling about this? I'm gonna get out the
RFCs and find out what sort of query is being put to the namesever.
