Speaking of interfaces and IPs, does anyone else think it would be a
good idea to be able to associate IP addresses with specific netbios
names? I'm mucking around with a number of machines with dual
ethernet/ATM interfaces and it would be nice to have samba available
on both interfaces but be able to choose which interface to use.

all netbios names are advertised on all interfaces and it shouldn't be
too hard to modify to do what I want.
