I have been trying nmblookup -A without much success.  I usually get a
name-not-found sort of message.

What I would really like is to get a list of netbios names and IP
addresses of all the workstations on the lan.  I suppose it is much like
going into the network neighborhood and grabbing hostnames.  The
conversion into IPs is easy enough.

I suppose I could set a script to watch snmbstatus, grab netbios names,
and nmblookup for IP addresses..but this seems silly.

Any better way to do this?
