Let me begin by saying that I'm not a network person so please be
patient as I try to muddle through this.  I'm wondering if someone in
the group can assist.  I've been working with Windows PPC 2002 and 2003
and have found that although the PPC DHCP client succesfully recieves
its DNS suffix (option 15, I think), it does not "devolve" that suffix
in the same way that other windows platforms do.  For example if it
recieves a suffix of .store.company.com, it will only attempt to
resolve xxxx.store.company.com and never xxxx.company.com.  Hope this
makes sense.

My question is, is this behaviour of devolving DNS suffixes on the
client side defined anywhere, in an RFC?  Is it part of the DNS spec?
And if so, can anyone point me to where?

thanks for any help
