I can now establish an Internet connection on the iBook, but having
trouble with certain sites.  Some pop up instantly (google, CNN), others
load slowly (BBC, Apple), and others (most) won't load at all (Yahoo,  I'm thinking this is a DNS issue, but I pointed the
iBook to the same Verizon DNS servers that are working fine on the
Ubuntu and win2k machines.

What else could be wrong?

BTW, Apple Care says get a router (because they think it is an issue
with Ubuntu, not the iBook).
