Write your /etc/hosts file:
Code:
192.168.0.10 foo.domain.com foo
192.168.0.11 bar.domain.com bar
 ... etc ...

1) Unless you have modifed resolv.h and recompiled, then the max nameservers that can be specified in resolv.conf is three

2) The "domain" and "search" options are mutually exclusive. So use one or the other. Also, you listed the search option twice instead of listing multiple domains separated by spaces or tab on one "search" line.

See: man resolv.conf
