DHCP domain suffix search in CIsco IOS

I'm trying to setup DHCP on our Cisco 2821 to send DHCP clients  domain suffix search infomormation for multiple domain names.  Obviously, ip domain-name works for only one (1) domain, not multiple.  For example, I want a DHCP client to obtain the following information:
IP Address
Default Gateway
DNS Server 1
DNS Server 2
Domain suffix 1: company.local
Domain suffix 2: newcompany.local

I've seen that DHCP attribute 119 may be an avenue to take, but don't know exactly how to configure.

I should say that most clients will be mostly MS Windows (XP, Vista), some Linux, some Mac OS-x

You can have multiple DNS servers but you can only have one Domain Suffix. Every client can only belong to one domain at a time.

In Win Server 2003 and 2000 option 119 doesn't even exist in DHCP. The closest to that is option 015 - DNS Domain Name, and only allows one record at a time.
