Windows 7: Which host file to use?

Which host file to use?

This is my first time with a 64 bit OS. I usually have to use the Hosts file to resolve my DNS on my XP machine. Do I use the hosts file in the same location that XP 32bit was for Win 7 64bit (windows\system32\drivers\etc\Hosts)? Or, is there another hosts file location that 64bit OS uses?
