Yes i just added 'search mydomain' as the first line of the resolv.conf 
and it works. Why does this fail on the 770 when all my other machines 
are set up correctly from my DHCP server. Is this not a bug in ITOS2006 
or have i missed something?

resolv.conf is not being updated at all, but looking at udhcpc.script 
(in /etc/udhcpc) it should work, and udhcpc works fine with a similar 
script on my linux machine with the same DHCP server.
