I worked out the domain name should go into /etc/resolv.conf (

You also have to assign the first nameserver to be _your_ nameserver and
# cat /etc/resolv.conf
Something is rewriting my resolv.conf at least every minute. I suspected it
must be dnsmasq attempting to do the DNS but I just stopped dnsmasq, and yet
resolv.conf is still being updated. I had a look over my ps output but dont
see anything that could be controlling resolv.conf.
This is the only entry in it:
which is the British Telecom DNS.
Do you have the resolvconf package installed?
