dpkg -l resolvconf will show you now have resolvconf installed. This is
actually a good thing as it will dynamically create a new
/etc/resolv.conf file if the nameserver info is updated by some server program
You proably need to edit /etc/network/interfaces and set the dns-* lines.
Then run /etc/init.d/resolvconf reload.
