Actually, there is a way around this.  Consider the two files

aaa.bbb.ccc.54       ivy    #PRE
#INCLUDE \\ivy\scripts\lmhosts

aaa.bbb.ccc.48      keating         #PRE #DOM:ENG-NT
aaa.bbb.ccc.43      kudzu           #PRE #DOM:ENG
aaa.bbb.ccc.126     lab1            #PRE

This way you only need to change the lmhosts file 
in \\ivy\scripts.

[>]  Yes. But you should work with #PRE in the included file, otherwise this file will be loaded every few minutes from the server (how to produce unnecessary network traffic ;-)  ). And you have to allow access to the share used by #include for anonymous users, because the command is executed when loading the IP stack and therefore before authentication. And you'll have to change the size of the NetBIOS name cache to hold all entries.
