I am still digesting what you said.  Thanks for the input.  I take it
that there is no RFC/HowTo/man page?

The problem I'm having after attempting to employ your suggestions is
that the machines with only a LAN interface are working exactly as
expected, but the dual homed machines cannot resolve those LAN
workstations.  For example, 'ping mike' from moe looks for mike.my.tld
(asking dnsmasq on larry).  Of course, mike.my.tld does not exist.  All
machines have nameserver (larry) in /etc/resolve.conf.

I'll continue to test different setups, but explanatory documentation
with examples would help an ignorant old man a lot...
