Unfortunately, at home I also need to list DNS server IPs. Add to this a
requirement for printers at each location (stand-alone on the LAN) and an
internet proxy server at work. On the upside, I've found that SuSe included
an application to help automate the switching between different networks. I
just have to figure out how do the setup.
