I need to add a group of DNS suffixes to my sysprepped base image. Since DNS suffixes are considered a personalized setting they're removed when sysprep installs the image on a new machine. I need to add 9 DNS suffixes in a certain order, similar to this:

xyz.ad.eer
ad.eer
llk.ad.eer
etc.

I tried a few different commands under the Networking secton in the answer file but nothing seemed to take. Using a sysprep answer file, Windows XP, reseal, use mini setup.

This is the link I have used before to add custom DNS suffix to an XP machine.  Not sure if it will fit your need as it is a registry entry.

Also, you could add a setup script to import it via a reg file, after completion.... Why not use policy to deploy the settings?

These are standalone computers, not joined to the domain, so any type of group policy is not an option.

I ended up adding a run once command using the command line syntax that mooo gave. Thanks guys.
