	Well since Java strings are already Unicode it's just a matter of converting each
	char into a two byte sequence so this should do it. Just replace each call
	str.getBytes( "UnicodeLittleUnmarked" ) with UnicodeVeryLittle.getBytes( str ).


	package jcifs.smb;

	public class UnicodeVeryLittle {

	    static byte[] getBytes( String str ) { 
	        char[] input = str.toCharArray();
	        byte[] output = new byte[input.length * 2];
	        int i, o;

	        o = 0;
	        for (i = 0; i < input.length; i++) {
	            ServerMessageBlock.writeInt2( input[i] & 0xFFFFL, output, o );
	            o += 2;

	        return output;
