Domain Name from DHCP server problem

Hi All,

I am getting Domain Name as "." from one of the DHCP server on the internet.
But my client network module rejects this Domain Name "." as per RFC 1034
and doesn't updates
to /etc/resolv.conf.  But it seems windows PC can accept "." Domain Name
and works fine.
As per RFC1034, "." is invalid domain name (section 3.5).

Please let me know if Domain Name "." is valid domain name or not?
Or in any other latest RFC's this syntax is updated?
