    Default resolv.conf keeps changing by itself

    ok, got through getting BIND to work more or less right, but now I am getting a perpetual problem with resolv.conf being constantly rewritten.

    I do not have Network Manager installed, nor do I have anything related to dhcp, such as dhclient, dhcp-client, dhcp3-client or any number of other dchp-related cat things that are mentioned in every article and post on this subject that I can find.

    I've grepped the whole server (except for /dev and /sys) for the IP address that whatever-it-is keeps inserting, but the only files that contain a reference to this external DNS server are the BIND (named) config files, and it is made clear in a number of places that not only does BIND not touch resolv.conf, it doesn't use it either.

    Does anyone know of any other package that messes with resolv.conf?

    RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.3.

    There are no DHCP packages installed at all, I have removed dhclient and confirmed that there are no dhcp or dhcp-related packages installed on the system using the command:

    yum info dh* | grep installed
