This was a lot of help.

findsmb made this much easier.  I now see NT systems.

As for win95... I grabbed findsmb, nmblookup, smbclient, smb.conf and
put them on another machine that doesn't run nmbd.  Win95 boxes are
still not revealing their netbios names with nmblookup.

Any ideas where to go from here?
