LMHOSTS can function like Unix /etc/hosts, but also can do much more, such as tell a host where to find its domain controller. On Win98 C:\windows\lmhosts, on an NT system with its root at winnt, it is c:\winnt\system32\etc\lmhost.
You should have an LMHOSTS.SAM, that's a sample that shows all the mysteries of its proper configuration. Here's an example that happens to use an NT server for validation but the SCO server is running visionfs:
10.1.1.1 NTSERV1 #PRE #DOM:THISDOM 10.1.1.1 "THISDOM \0x1b" #PRE 10.1.1.2 SCOSERV1 #PRE
Read the lmhosts.sam file carefully..spacing is critical on that 0x1b line.
