We are running active directory with windows 98 clients and for various reasons, not all of our overseas sites have access to DNS... Is there a way of having a central hosts file which they can point to, and if so, where can i find information on how to implement it?

Thanks,

They do not have access to your DNS server or DNS servers in general? You can put as many DNS servers as you like in their network config and if they are part of your network or domain they should be able to use them.

They have access to another (less reliable)system which offers DNS (for other reasons, they do not want to use W2K DNS), and the host entries have been added to this other system... It has made no difference, they still cannot resolve the address we need them to, which means we have to go down the hosts file route

If they have a central server you can have it set up so it will download it to their local PC
