Any changes I make to /etc/resolv.conf are permanent and do not get
changed automaticly by anything.  I switch between my ISPs nameservers and
the one on my network, depending on what state of mind I'm in.  This is
accomplished by commenting (#) the nameserver I do not wish to use.

Please post your resolv.conf, I expect it is only one or two lines.

[ryan vanessa]:[~]$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
search endless.eu.org
nameserver localhost
