Using hosts.sam file

hi everyone,
i want to set up the hosts.sam file to have better browsing experience. i have setup the file appropriately but the fact is that the browser is not effectively using that. For eg, i've added an entry like this:
120.22.334.22 google.com
But its going to the default site i.e 216.239.41.99.
Why is this so? Does anyone know what to do next??

    There may be a couple of reasons for this but I think you may have missed one simple thing. You have to rename the hosts.sam file to just hosts (no extention). Also make sure you have removed the # marks from the line that contains the host you are defining.

    Hope this helps
