yeah that's weird.

It should be defined in your hosts file.  In XP it's located at  
c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and I think always under in  
c:\windows or c:\winnt in earlier versions of windows.

There ought to be an entry like this:       localhost

If there isn't, put one in.

You may have to run Start > Run > nbtstat -R to register the change in the  
hosts file.
