    We've done the same thing for years and I've had this problem reported
by our help desk as well. Some unregistered Vista systems (apparently not
all) were getting the wrong DNS servers.

    I've not yet gotten by hands on one of the offenders long enough to do
a proper analysis of the problem so I do not know if it was related to
DHCPINFORM packets or not. I'd be interested if you discover anything more.
