In general, NetworkManager works pretty well for m. It swaps
automagically from my wired network to my wireless network and back, I
can select from the various networks available, and it handles WPA with
great aplomb.

BUT: I need to set up a domain search list. I have
edited /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf accordingly, and it is completely

I tried selecting "manual configuration" and entering extra domains in
the search list on the "DNS" tab, but NetworkManager just sets them back
to what they were before.

As far as I can tell, Network Manager uses whatever the DHCP server
sends - and that's it. I don't want to alter what the DHCP server sends,
I want to override it locally.

Anyone know how to do that?

Regards, K.
