The first entry in that DNS FAQ you linked to describes what you can do to handle the error the Re-Check config mentioned.

Give that a shot, and let us know if you're still having problems after trying the suggestions in there.

Thanks for the help.

I am using vps with CentOS 5 32bits

I create the /etc/dhclient.conf with: prepend domain-name-servers;

in /etc/resolv.conf has: nameserver nameserver

And I do this: 'System Settings' -> 'Virtualmin Configuration' -> 'Advanced Settings', and set 'Check resolv.conf for this system' to 'No'.

And now the recheck is OK.

I reinstall and now I see when I reboot automatically overwrites the file /etc/resolv.conf So I do 'chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf'.

And now all is ok.

Thanks for the help
