installing ubuntu 10.04

The isp provided me with
During the ubuntu install I have come to a question of
Configure the network
The name servers are used to look up host names
on the network.
Please enter the IP addresses (not the host names)
of up to 3 name servers, separated by spaces.
Do not use commas. The first name server in the

I got the above done, for sure now I am confused about
DNS. I guess more on that later.
The next thing I come to is configure courier-base.
Now at this point I am in the middle of installing echp.
I already did: wget
then I get this:
Courier uses several configuration files in /etc/courier.
Some of these files can be replace by a subdirectory whose contents are concatenated and treated as a single, consolidated, configuration file.
The web-based administration provided by the courier-web admin package relies on configuration directories instead of configuration files. If you agree, any directories needed for the web-based administration tool will be created unless there is already a plain file in place.
Create directories should I choose yes or no?
And sir could I please get a explanation as to why I should or should not choose yes or no.

you may choose both yes or
you may choose both yes or no, no matters.
that is a webbased interface provided by courier (i never saw it), and we do not use it with ehcp. we dont need to use it, AFAIK.
