Acer Aspire One hosts file

On the Acer Aspire One Linux (Linpus) version, the /etc/hosts file is restored to its original state on each restart. After much fustrating googling, I finally gave up and tried to locate where in the startup the file is restored. The causing script is /etc/rc.d/rc.5 - Modify this if you want to customize the hosts file.
