resolv.conf

I discovered that the following resolve.conf does not work for an
erlang node and will cause all namserver lookups to fail because there
are no nameservers registered in the node:

	search cs.rpi.edu rpi.edu
	nameserver 128.113.18.1 ns.cs.rpi.edu

But the following does work:

	search cs.rpi.edu rpi.edu
	nameserver 128.113.18.1

What was really interesting was that no other application was having
problems with DNS services EXCEPT for Erlang.  This is release R7B.

You guys might want to add this to the FAQ about getting a distributed
Erlang to work.

BTW, that JInterface is great.  :-)  Thanks.
