I have built LFS many times and I too use the DHCP client. I don't
actually recall /etc/resolv.conf being created for me by anything. I
just keep a copy of the file in my home dir and copy it across when
building a new system...
I only have one line in my resolv.conf which is
10.0.0.2 is the IP address (on my LAN side) of my DSL router. That gets
its DNS address information from the network when the DSL link first
I might be wrong but this is what I remember of the process...
