When I try to edit hosts with vi, it prompts the following message:
Found a swap file by the name ".hosts.swp"
dated: Sun Apr 15 14:25:11 2001
owned by: root
file name: /etc/hosts
host name: dino-s2.renjubridge.com
user name: root
process ID: 718

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
different instances of the same file when making changes.
Quit, or continue with caution.
(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r hosts"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery)".
If you did this already, delete the swap file ".hosts.swp"
to avoid this message.

Can anyone tell me why and what to do about this? Thanks.
