I'm running Etch. My resolv.conf starts with the line:

You can just

apt-get remove network-manager

What is your network like? Do you have a static ip or use dhcp? If you know your ip settings do not change, then just

Modify /etc/network/interfaces, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/networks to suit your needs.

If you are using dhcp, then you might want to look into /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
