i didn't mean to suggest _instead_ of WINS.  any effective Unix system has
entries in /etc/hosts for machines whose information doesn't change -
loghost, localhost, a couple others...  DNS is used for things not under
our direct control or which change dynamically.  WINS should be the same
setup - a couple of entries for the machines whose functionality is
critical within lmhosts, and the others register/delete themselves from
WINS as needed.
