Is that the actual content of that actual file? The file you care
about is /etc/resolv.conf (with only one 'e' in "resolv"), and the
nameserver lines should begin with "nameserver". So for you
/etc/resolv.conf might look like
(The "search" line tells the resolver to look for
"internal.healeyonline.com" if it's given just "internal"; you can
safely leave it out, but I generally find it a convenience.)
