Hello Gerard,

This seems to be obvious enough.
You are trying to statically assign your DNS search order, as well as
static name servers, but you have your nic, rl0 on DHCP, which overwrites
the file on boot-up, as you mention.

What you should do is take off DHCP, in rc.conf file.
Something like:

ifconfig_rl0="inet netmask"

Above, you would set your static IP address.

Hope this helps.
