something like this:
Alias: windowsbox

ie an IP address, a long (fully-qualified) hostname, and a short hostname that 
you wish to use to access the windows box, instead of either the numerical 
address or the long version.
This is usually the bit before the first dot in the long name, but it actually 
can be anything you wish.

this should write a line in /etc/hosts like this... windowsbox
