Here is a partial map:

A computer gets a value by its OS:

Windows 3.1		1
Windows 95		1
Windows 98		2
Win NT Workst. 3.51	16
Win NT Workst. 4.0	17
Win NT Server 3.51	32
WIn NT Server 4		33

And a computer gets a value by its role:

active backup browser		1
standby browser			2
active master browser		4
preferred master browser	8
WINS client			32
PDC				128

I am using an os level of 65, which I assume is
higher than Windows Me and Windows XP Pro. But
I haven't actually checked, so don't take this
as reference info.
