You can use something like TextEdit, TextWrangler, Smultron to edit the file. If using the terminal you can use nano, vi, vim, emacs to edit the file.
The only problem with some of these editors is finding an explicit line. As I seem to recall, the known_host file message gives a line number. Since the lines in the known_hosts file are very long, a lot of these editors line wrap so just counting visible lines is not accurate.

Thanks a lot.... The Go To Folder menu (which I've never used - after all these years on the Mac!) did the trick, unlike Spotlight (as expected), attempts with Terminal or using the search field inside the normal/visible folders. I found several people with a similar situation when Googling, but nobody mentioned this simple methods. Thanks again!
