Default Changed lost when editing resolv.conf

I'm following this tutorial to setup reverse DNS on my server:

http://howtoforge.com/linux_bind9_an..._nameserver_p2

In step 6 where it tells me to modify resolv.conf, I do so and save the changes, but whenever I restart named, the changes are back to default with only
Code:
# generated by NetworkManager, do not edit!

; Use a local caching nameserver controlled by NetworkManager


nameserver 127.0.0.1
in the file. How can I get around this?

Did you edit /etc/resolv.conf as root?

Yes I did. I also read that using DHCP will result in reverting to the default file upon reboot or restart of the named service, but the IPs of the two network cards are static.

The changes are saved up until I restart named.

Do you use a tool called NetworkManager?

No. I have no idea what it is nor do I know where to find it. I've looked.

Do you have a desktop on that system? Network Manager sounds like a desktop app.

X is installed and I tried going into it, but the only thing I knew to try would be system-config-network (something like that). I didn't find anything useful there.

Can you go into your package manager and find that app?
Is it maybe hidden somewhere in your System menu in GNOME or on the taskbar?
