[MiNT] Success, finally

Hello, all

A memory board losing contact does an amazing amount of damage to a TT030, including making the hard drive electronics not work any more. And, due to another problem I have yet to solve, maybe having to do with insufficient termination current to SCSI terminators, did not have a working backup.

Simply put, usepeerdns did not produce a working nameserver. It was not until I realized that there are three resolv.conf files in /etc, and made them all read

domain isp.com

and finally I could telnet to a name, not just to a dotted quad address. Before making all three files read the same, and making domainname easymint, I got redirected to the owner of those two nameservers, according to nslookup, which worked all along.

Now to make another backup.
