[1.2 installation] resolv.conf without bind; or should I just use bind too?

What's the recommended way to get a minimal resolv.conf file?

I wasn't planning on using bind, but no package other than bind seems to 
provide resolv.conf.

Should I just create resolv.conf my hand, or should I get the one from the 
bind package for whatever useful defaults (including explanatory comments) 
it contains?

- The main thing I need to do is to specify nameserver lines for when I'm
	on line.  (I use dial-up IP (diald and PPP); I'm not on a LAN or on 
	ppp permanently.) 

- I'm converting from Slackware 2.1 to Debian 1.2.
- To keep the Debian system clean, I'm loading default Debian configuration 
	files and then customizing them, instead of just trying to dump my
	old configuration files onto the Debian system.
