search linux.bogus     ## assuming linux.bogus is your domain
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx    # external ISP's DNS

OR set nameserver to point to your router, if you have a
caching/forwarding DNS on it.

For better docs, consult your friendly neighborhood DNS-HOWTO for
caching/forwarding servers.

My personal experience, my linksys wap didn't do what I wanted
DHCP/DNS-wise, so I set up one of my linux boxes (the one with the
modem) to be the DHCP/DNS server.
