/etc/hosts permanent changes?


How can i achieve permanent changes of /etc/hosts? I found that i can do "chattr +i /etc/hosts", but i think this is a solution of necessity. Is there another way to add a host?
There was another similar thread and the answer was "edit /etc/hostname"; there is no such filename however.
What can i do?
Thanks

What do you want to do ? resolve known host names to their IPs ?
If yes, it is not hard, add the hosts in /etc/hosts as :
Code:
127.0.0.1  localhost
10.0.0.1    nocturna
10.0.0.2    futura
64.179.4.149  www.linuxquestions.org
Why do you need to chattr it ?
