Um... Do you want NetBIOS or NetBEUI?  Do you want NetBIOS over TCP/IP?

See, NetBIOS is an API, not a protocol.

If you want to work with SMB/CIFS filesharing (Samba, etc.) then you're on
the right track.  If you are actually trying to use the NetBIOS API then
jCIFS may not have what you're looking for.
