Rob is right to suggest a DNS server, like the one on the AS/400.  As
most environments are moving to an IP based architecture, working with
lmhosts and WINS is not a suggested course of action.  Hosts files and
DNS are the backbone of the IP stuff and is absolutely necessary when
dealing with IP communications and messaging!
