Exporting SearchList key and nothing else!

There has been a lot of trouble lately with people in my company installing their own wireless cards (for home) and wiping out their DNS settings. All clients are running Windows 2000, and we have a NetWare file and print environment. Anyway I have been using regedit to export the


hive from a working machine. However, I can't just click on the exported .reg file on the troubled PC as it contains machine specific information (i.e. Hostname...) so how can I just export the SearchList key, and make a nice generic list of DNS entries that will work on any computer in the company? If I find this then my goal with be to find a way to push it out with Zen Works or through a NAL object. TIA!

consider REG.EXE
with the REG QUERY syntax.


and I'd also think you'd be better off looking under CurrentControlSet, rather than ControlSet001
