Are you new to LinuxQuestions. You can indeed control what goes into the automatically generated file, but only by modifying the sources that are used to generate it.
Anything is fair game. There are lots of packages out there that futz with resolv.
One of my chief occupations during the past year has been hunting down all these packages and getting them to disable their trickery when resolvconf is installed.

Below is an email I got from one of the resolvconf guys on the debian bugs list explaining what the problem may be: For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration.
Support was not added because it was expected that dhcp-client would be replaced by what is currently dhcp3-client.So how do you prevent Ubuntu from overwriting that motorcarsintinc.com entry?
