 Subject:  DNS/DHCP Question

Hi all!  Happy new year!

Quick question, I am now running build 23 and  noticed something with 
the dns/dhcp, this may have existed before but I just noticed it....

On my windows workstations that are issues dynamic IPs the Primary DNS 
Suffix is left blank, even though I am filling in the Domain field under 
General Setup.  Should that field be pushed to the clients?  This really 
helps with using short names and having the workstations append the 
local domain to it.  ;)   No biggie as I could just tell the 
workstations a list of domains to append, but normally that is sent to 
them during the dhcp request when they receive dns, wins, etc information.
