For DHCP, the


config option. You can't have more than one of these unless you move to 
version 2.46rc1 (see posts to this list in the last few days)

For /etc/hosts, there's no limit on the domain part of fully qualified 
domains: for bare names in /etc/hosts (when expand-hosts is set) then 
the domain part comes from domain=, the same as for DHCP.
