Need help to setup network with an A2065

Hi Amix aficionados,

I finally got hold of an A2065 network card for my A3000. I'm running Amix 2.1x + updates and patches (X11R5, Picasso, Ariadne, etc.).
But I'm not able to figure out how to setup the network right. Here some steps I did:

1.
I created two hosts via amixadm opt. 7:
own machine IP: A3000 192.168.0.80
2nd machine: gateway 192.168.0.1
With that I'm able to ping all hosts in my lan 168.192.0.*, but none outside my network. Makes sense, as "netstat -r" confirmed that I have no route to the outside world.

2.
I manually added a route with "route add default gateway 192.168.0.1". This works only if I have the gateway also in the /etc/hosts file.
With that I can now ping the internet servers (via IP addresses only). But the route is gone after a reboot. So, were do I configure the gateway permanently in SVR4? I could put the above command line in some startup config file, but there is certainly a proper way to do this as it is originally intended.

3. How do I setup DNS correctly. I'm pretty sure that SVR4 supports DNS so that I don't have to populate my /etc/hosts file with hundreds of entries. Out of experience I created /etc/resolv.conf with two entries:
nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 8.8.8.8 (that's a public google one)

But this doesn't seem to work. With "nslookup <server>" I get the following messages:
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.0.1: Not implemented
*** Can't find server name for address 8.8.8.8: Timed out
*** Default servers are not available

But I'm able to ping both IPs. Not sure what's going on. I'm certainly missing something important. Any idea?
