In your dial-up connection properties for your internet provider,
try checkmarking the "Log onto Network" box.
You do not need a "hosts" file nor a fixed IP address.
If, for some reason, you do want to create a "hosts" file,
put it in the C:\WINDOWS directory. There will already be a file
in there called hosts.sam which is a "sample" hosts file created by
Windows 95, but I don't need a hosts file, so you shouldn't either.
