Sounds like your on a debian style system. Details please? For
example, on Ubuntu (recent ones I think) you need to add a line like:
into your /etc/network/interfaces file so that on bootup it will
populate /etc/resolv.conf properly.

cat /etc/resolv.conf first off.

You might need to reboot, but first just tell us the Distribution and
version you're using.
