To save a file in nano you use CTRL X. Make sure you use 'sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf' So you can save the file with out the permission denied error message.

- at - Just - CTRL+X exits NANO, not saves. That would be CTRL+O.
I'm wanting to know how to perform this operation permanently. The moment you restart/shutdown, you will have to edit resolv.conf again.

Assuming you're using a static IP address, edit /etc/network/interfaces to include the DNS server information.
For example, eth0 would read like this (using openDNS):
iface eth0 inet static
dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
save the file, then either restart the interface (ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0) or the computer.
