	From your DHCP server?

your dhclient.conf:
>interface "eth0" {
>send host-name "froschkoenig";
>prepend domain-name-servers,;

	Here you specify and as your DNS servers.

>supersede domain-name "maerchenwald";
>request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
>        domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name;

	You ask for domain-name and domain-name-servers there. If that
	is not what you want, don't do it. Replace your configuration
	with something like this:

interface "eth0" {
send host-name "froschkoenig";
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
require subnet-mask;
	You can also have a peek on your bootp traffic with tcpdump:

# tcpdump -v -v -s 1500 -i eth0 port bootpc

	...but I'm afraid that at least my WLAN card did not work with
