<tip type="hosts file">
In Windows NT, it is commonly known that you must edit
C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS to override DNS mappings of domains to
IP's.  Many people using Windows 98 find that changing the
C:\windows\hosts.sam file does not seem to do anything.  Rename the
"C:\windows\hosts.sam" file to hosts and your mappings will work as expected
after closing and reopening Internet Explorer.
