Hi Ted,

You could try locating a server with tracert command. In dos window
(start->run->cmd->[enter]) - tracert domainname.xxx i.e. tracert
www.google.com (more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traceroute)

For general info on: "How to find a host's geographical location ?" go here:

You may also try this: 
http://kharkoma.homelinux.com/gmaps/gmaptc.html - tracert + google maps.

Some other, perhaps commercial software is here:
