    I was installing Kazaa Lite 2.02 and this is the read me

    TO INSTALL KAZAALITE (KAZAALITE.COM EDITION)

    First go into the folder marked "first stage", once in there run the installation of Kazaalite BUT do not install the supertrick (it wont work well)

    Once the installation is complete goto the "second stage" folder. Click on the shortcut name "KaZaA Lite default folder quick access" this will take you into the default folder of Kazaalite.
    Copy the Kazaa.exe on the second stage directory into c:\program files\Kazaa Lite\ (default install dir for Kazaalite) and overright the older exe.

    Thats the program installed all you need now is the host file.
    Follow the instructions below

    INSTALLATION OF HOSTS FILE

    Put the file in the following dir:
    Linux /etc
    Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows\
    Windows NT/2000/XP c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\
    c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\
    ----------------

    My question is what is the purpose of replacing the Hosts file, just curious, thought it seemed a little shady but im retarded with this stuff..........TIA

    Or to bypass the intermediate servers - not sure since I've never installed it.
