I recognize that sig, how's it going boy? Still selling your soul
to GNUstep? :)

I walked in halfway through this, am I right in thinking you want
to use a particular nameserver no matter where you are?

If you don't want dhclient to whack your resolver, you can tell it
to append your DNS to resolv.conf:

1rasputin at lb:rasputin$ cat /etc/dhclient.conf
interface "cue0" {
         prepend domain-name-servers;
         supersede domain-name "tenfour";
         supersede host-name "lb";
1rasputin at lb:rasputin$

Drop me a mail off list when you get five, we'll have a cuppa.
