     This is to report that some cases of the NetWare client not being 
     to connect to the roundrobin DNS (rc5proxy.distributed.net) were 
     resolved by the following action:
     Ensure that correct information is contained in the 
     SYS:\etc\resolv.cfg file.  The following is the correct information 
     for any server in my domain (*.okstate.edu (139.78.*.*)):
     domain okstate.edu
     search hosts dns
     (although I must admit that the last entry looks a little strange...)
     It is necessary that this file contain correct information otherwise 
     both NETDB.NLM and RC564.NLM will have difficulty resolving 
     into IP addresses.
     I suspect that a similar comment holds for th UNIX clients, but 
     on such machines probably notice misconfigured DNS more quickly.
