Oops, I stand corrected.  Was thinking in NT terms, as theire can be a
"secondary WINS" server (similar to a BDC for load sharing).  All machines
no matter what the subnet thought should have their  TCP/IP settings
changed to point to the WINS server that DOES exist.

The browse masters on each subnet that DOES NOT have a wins server should
have a line saying "wins server = WINS_NETBIOS_NAME" where you replace
WINS_NETBIOS_NAME with the netbios name of the WINS server (NT or samba).

That way the browse masters will send their lists to the wins server.

Correct me if I'm wrong..
