[K12OSN] IPCop DNS Issues

I recently set up a box and installed IPCop on it to serve as our
firewall. It apparently runs a caching DNS server, but for the life of
me, I cannot figure out where it gets ITS dns info. And as you might
guess, I'm having some pretty severe DNS troubles.
Lookups are taking a full minute. That means that any webpage with
say... five different domains in it takes a minimum of five minutes to load.
In the K12ltsp box I changed /etc/resolv.conf so that it uses a name
server other than ipcop, but that didn't seem to help. If I ping
something by ip address, it comes back immediately, but if I ping by
name, it takes a minute, and THEN I get good ping times.
I know this is not the IPCop mailing list, but I'm asking here because
this is a friendly (and knowledgeable) crowd. Also, I would entertain
the thought of using something other than IPCop, so if anyone has a
suggestion, please! I'm all ears!
