Another DNS server running on your machine, and binding port 53?
Check the output of "netstat -ap" for servers listening on the "domain"
Note: if your plan is to have dnsmasq listening on eth0 and another DNS
server listening on other interfaces, then you need to add
"bind-interfaces" to /etc/dnsmasq.conf. See the FAQ for details on this.
