if your / is a romfs, you /etc/resolv.conf cannot be edited. A solution can
be a symlink
to a file in a ramfs (/etc/resolv.conf -> /var/resolv.conf) that you put in
romfs directory before compiling uclinux. You must be able to edit
to file a running time.
Another solution can be edit the /etc/resolv.conf in the romfs before
the compilation of uClinux and include a particular nameserver
(a DNS server of a university, your ISP, international none-profit
In general, any dns server can be used and you can use more than one!

It appears this was added in 2.3.6. What 2.3 are you running? Did you
follow the instructions in the README file about how to do this?
And you do have a R/W root partition?
