The problem is that DHCP will always use your local-host as a search-host after you have rebooted your machine. To keep this from happening, a small edit is necessary.

STEPS: 1. Edit the file: "/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
2. Look for the line hashed out (#) starting with the word "prepend"
3. Un-comment the line (by removing the (#) and add your search domain. (I use google - 8.8.8.8)
4. Reboot and you will see your /etc/resolv.conf has the serch-domain stuck.
