I am doing some testing and am having to make many changes to /etc/hosts

Is there a way to reload the /etc/hosts file without doing a service 
network restart?

I hope that in a while I can run BIND with a bunch of faked-out zone 
files (did this once to crack a Vonage PAP2).  But for right now, I 
cannot introduce BIND to the equation....
