Trying again seem to be having problems getting this on the list sorry  
for the delay :

The Question:

In the [MS-NLMP].pdf Section states that 0x800 "r7:  This bit  
is unused and MUST be zero.". I have notice that XP sets this bit when  
sending an anonymous authentication. Can we have this bit clarified?

The Answer:
Good morning! We will be documenting the 0x800 bit; I am currently  
waiting for the change text for the document, and will forward that to  
you as soon as it is available. This may take a few more working days.

Thanks for your patience!
