That is the original 'resolv.conf' file.  I have not touched it and also
I was not allowed to alter this file even as ROOT.  This was very
strange to me.  The said file can be opened with a Text editor, 'nano'
or 'kedit', and editing also allowed.  'Saving changes' to the file was
not allowed.  You can save the file but it only retains its original

If no solution found then I think I have to make another clean
installation of Debian 3.0 again.  I will use net-installation.  I am
connecting to broadband of 3MB bandwidth.  If it is not installing from
source code, like Gentoo 1.4, the download time won't be long and I can
have the maybe uptodate packages.
