Woody & M$ dhcp

Hi all,
Got this debian beast running **illegally** on the company network. My
problem is that everytime I've got to reboot it, the dhcp server running
on M$ NT, assigns the NIC a proper IP address but overwrites my
resolv.conf with something like "KSL\000". Changing resolv.conf permisions
to -r--r--r-- did not yield fruit. How do I stop this from occurring.
Secondly, once in a while I'm forced to unplug the network cable to detach
the machine from the network whenever the IT guys undertake an audit. All
applications continue to function well but get /var/log/syslog filled up
with dhclient-2.2.x error messages while some other app keeps writing "--
MARK --" in /var/log/messages. Looks like my limited disk space shall all
be eaten up by log files. Any idea on how to reduce the amount of logging
in my case??
