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?
