[TriLUG] Reverse Lookup Using /etc/hosts

I am at a site where a bunch of devices don't reverse resolve via
DNS. I have a spreadsheet with the IPs and the hostnames so I've
created an /etc/hosts file in the proper format with that
information, and in nsswitch.conf I've set hosts to files then dns.
However, host/nslookup will not resolve the IP to a name.
Am I missing something here? I swear I've had this work before.
P.S. CentOS4 if it matters.
