Thanks Tim, 

I've downloaded WINS.C from the CVS depository and am wondering how does it
fit into Samba?
The nsswitch path is not in version 2.0.6, when will it be included?

Thanks, Andrew

Check out the latest HEAD branch from the cvs repository.  The
source/nsswitch directory has a wins.c module which may do what
you want.
