[SunRescue] Easy problem!

Actually, /etc/defaultdomain is used for NIS and NIS+ domains, not DNS
domains. In official docs I've read, setting your NIS or NIS+ domain to the
same as your DNS domain is deprecated.
DNS domain is in the hosts file and in /etc/resolv.conf; it'd also be in the
named config files.

Yes, you create each one. There should be one line in each file, I don't
think they like comments or blank leading lines.

defaultdomain should have something like:

defaultrouter should contain the IP address of the router used to get
outside your subnet.
