Edit your 'hosts' file and enter to match the
domain you wish to remap.

The file is in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc on NT/2000;
can't remember where its 9X equivalent lives.

If it's not there, find a file called hosts.sam instead
then make the changes and rename it just hosts (without
a suffix).
