New to OV NNM

I am more or less a beginner w/ NNM.  I am trying to set up what I perceive is a straightforward OV-NNM setup:  Monitor all our of WANs 200 routers.  I have created a seed file with simply 5 of our core routers.  However, the only ones that appears are local to the NNM server.  I am not able to discover say a router from New York.  I get a message to the effect of: Unable to add interface x.x.x.x from the seed file: unable to determine subnet mask for new network.  My understanding is I can simply place the IP address of the router and away we go.  Obviously not the case.  I have tried loadhosts but I get an error to the effect ofC:\>loadhosts -m c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
ERROR: Could not open input file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc: Permission denied".  I have full rights to this box so I do not understand why I would get such an error.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
