host file location + xp home

Anybody know where the host files are on windows xp home sp2. Supposed to be here [c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts] , but I don't have it. I have only got up to the drivers, but not the \etc\hosts.I do not have a windows xp cd only restore cd's. Thanks.

I do not have XP Home, only XP professional. It is located at C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. Perhaps you are looking in the wrong place.

The location is supposed to be %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\, so try that in a command window and see what the environment variables expand to.

Or try using the search feature of windows to locate the file.

It was right where it was supposed to be, I was looking at the blue things and overlooked the 2 folders at top. Thanks.
