How to order the priority of DNS servers

Hi!

I'm using the VPN client "Juniper NetScreen Remote" to connect my laptop to
the corporate network.
After the VPN is established there are the following network parameters:

C:\Documents and Settings\sracz>ipconfig /all

As you can see here there is one DNS server at the Ethernet Interface and
two more
DNS servers at the VPN interface (SafeNet Virtual Adapter).
The DNS server at the VPN interface are provided to the laptop over XAuth
settings.

After the VPN is established it is possible to reach IP addresses at the
corperate
network through the tunnel and it is possible to reach IP addresses at the
internet.

But if I want to resolve a name the client always tries to get an answer
from the
DNS server 192.168.0.1 and not from the other two DNS servers bound to the VPN
interface.

And this is my problem. I need to contact the internal DNS servers instead
of the
public DNS server while I'm connected to the corporate LAN. But even after a
time
intensive search at the internet I'm still not able to tell Windows XP to
use the
DNS servers bound to the VPN interface.

I hope there is anybody outside who can give me an information where it is
possible
to configure this priority order.
