nameservers and resolv.conf(s): switching from charter cable to tds dsl

this afternoon I was looking through files on my system because when I added a
new user, Pine wanted to give the user a chartermi.net domain even though I've
changed everything (I thought) to tdS. In looking over my files I found a
/etc/resolv.conf, /etc/dhcpc/resolv.conf and /var/lib/dhcpc/resolv.conf. These
contain what appear to be old nameservers from charter, and the /etc/resolv.conf
still also says "search mad.charter.net." If I remove the resolv.conf(s), I get
an ip address when I reboot but I don't actually connect--can't access anything
online. so it would appear that I do need resolv.conf somewhere and I need
nameservers, but I thought dhcpcd was responsible for getting those. I'm sure I
shouldn't still be using the same nameservers.
Any explanations/suggestions would be appreciated.
