You can also use Finder:
'Shift + Cmd + G' will open up the 'Go to folder' window.
Enter '/etc' and you will show up in a new folder where the file 'hosts' should exist.

Instead of looking for and editing the hosts file you might want to use the NetInfo Manager tool to manage your host names and IP addresses. Look in your Utilities folder.

This tool maintains a database of system name/value information, of which the host information is just a small part.

I can't step you through it as I'm on a PC now (yuck) but the built in help is pretty good.

Just remember to restart/reload the database after you've made all your changes. This is toward the right end of the menu bar.
