Thanks! I had my computer on another LAN a week or so ago. On that LAN I
had to change my network settings to DHCP. The DHCP client must have
overwritten my resolv.conf! I didn't know it did that, I just made the
connection because of what was in my resolv.conf file. This weekend after
installing VirtualBox and then starting coLinux and finding that I couldn't
reach the internet I just updated /etc/network/interfaces since I didn't
Putting "nameserver 192.168.0.254" in resolv.conf fixed my problems
Henry and Daniel, thank you both for your help!
