I use the hosts file extensively just as I did in Win98 (after getting the file to be editable). It works exactly the same. You can only block the full name of the site (all the stuff between "http://" and the ".com" or ".net" etc.). For example, to block doubleclick there are hundreds of lines like this:
127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net #[MVPS.Criteria]
