NetBIOS over TCP/IP ports

	137/udp		name server
	138/udp		datagram
	139/tcp		session service

SMB is implemented on top of the NetBIOS 
session service (MS's RPC implementation sits on top
of SMB named pipes).

Windows 2000 allows you to do away with NetBIOS by 
supported SMB directly over TCP/IP (ala port 445/tcp).
However, no release version of Samba supports 
port 445 yet.
