I'm having an odd problem with it also.  I'm running 2.0.4b on my PDC, and it
shows up as being in the workgroup WORKGROUP, rather than REACNET as it should
be and as every other machine is.  smbclient always reports WORKGROUP for the
domain=[...] debug line for this machine.  I assume it's a problem with the
configuration of the machine itself, not with findsmb.  Any ideas?  Everything
else (that is, PDC support) works fine (and has for months).  Sample output:

---------------------------------------------------------------------     PLUTO          [REACNET] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0]     JUPITER       *[WORKGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.4b]     NEPTUNE        [REACNET] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.4b]     SATURN         [REACNET]     NTONTIME       [REACNET] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0]    ABAKUN         [REACNET] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0]
