You could add lines in /etc/hosts... and then look at /etc/nsswitch.conf
for a line like - 

hosts:      files nisplus dns

You want to make sure "files" appears on the line, but no necessarily
first I don't think. 

I think this may work. I know that my Linux boxes were picking up host
information here, but my windows hosts were not (they have no such
mechanism that I know of). I ended up having to create a DNS server for
my LAN to fix my Windows woes.
