If you are doing pppoe (which I think you mentioned you were) you can
set the ppp daemon to config your resolv.conf with your ISPs name
servers automatically.

Look at the example pppoe configs in /usr/share/doc/rp-pppoe/configs

If you are doing LAN DHCP, then config your LAN DHCP server (router)
with your ISPs name servers, then have your DHCP config your
resolv.conf for you.

Disabling ipv6 will prevent some browsers from trying an ipv6 name
server lookup on each request.

# echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >>/etc/modprobe.conf

Then reboot for it to take affect.
