I have a blog on GoDaddy that is being switched from Windows hosting to Linux hosting. The Lionux version has a temporary domain name. I need to edit the hosts file to point the IP address of the Linux-hosted blog to the old domain name, then kill out the Window-hosted IP address. I'm told this is a relatively simple process once I access the hosts file.

I've never worked in Linux. I don't know where/how to find the hosts file. And the instructions I've found online that applied to Leopard don't seem to apply to Snow Leopard.

Where/how can I find this hosts file so I can point the IP address to its correct domain name?
