In order to access this file, your device needs to be rooted and you must use an explorer with root tree functionality (such as Root Explorer in the market).

Updated
I thought about it, I just changed the hosts file a copy in a separate folder (eg C: \ temp) and replace the original with Vista and it did not pick up the details (do not know why) but if I follow the above approach and change the origianl, it works fine.
