I had a similar problem. The file /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf is the file
that controls resolv.conf (at least on this system). You can specify
which DNS is used first by using
prepend domain-name-servers xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
replacing of course the x's with the ip address of the DNS. This line
is already present using 127.0.0.1 but is commented out.
I have tried it, and it works.
