Yes thank you. It is working fine for me as well now, Here is the relevant

request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
# http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-409110.html
# domain-name-servers,
    netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope;

Actually what I had earlier overlooked was commenting out
domain-name-servers from this request so while the DNS server addresses
where correctly prepended, they were being requested again.

What I was looking for though was the elegant solution. I am a noob to the
world of unix but from what I have read/know about it, it's networking code
is absolutely the best. Which leads me on to thinking what it is that I can
do for the DHC protocol to take effect the way it is supposed to, rather
than me hardcoding things in its config files which IMHO is a bull headed
approach to making things work.

Somewhere on bugzilla people are recommending rolling back to an older
version of some package, but surely with the amount of chatter this issue
has created it must have been fixed by now. And the fact that DHCP works in
MS XP without any tweaks sticks out like a sore thumb. Why can't I recreate
the same in ubuntu?
