it's always helpful to have an lmhosts file on the Windoze box to help the
poor thing figure things out.  on Win95/98 this file is
%SYSTEMROOT%\hosts, and on NT4 the file is
%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\lmhosts.  simply putting an entry in
like the following will help out immensely:     host     #PRE  #DOM:DOMAIN

ex:	  sambapdc	#PRE  #DOM:MYDOMAIN

this will preload the sambapdc=> reference in the NetBIOS
