With any luck it's not in your hosts file on the PC but instead uses
something called a dns or Domain Name Server.  Any place with more than 3
clients on their net should have one.  For example from my w2k client I
click on
Start, Settings, Network and Dial up connections, Local area connection,
Properties, Internet Protocol, Properties, and then in the section "Use the
following DNS server addresses"

I getting ready to migrate to a new box.  We would like to keep the
IP address of the old box.  In the Client Access workstation profile (*.ws
file) there is an entry for the HostName.  I am planning on doing a mass
change of the host names on the PC's but I am looking for the file that
associates the HostName with an IP address.  Would this be the
'c:\windows\host' file?
