You are getting a group name. That means the machine has not registered
the 00 name as a unique name. Odd.
Try: nmblookup cemnter#1d
...if it's on the local LAN you'll find it this way, otherwise it will be
> ./nmblookup cemnter
> querying cemnter on 192.168.142.255
> 255.255.255.255 cemnter2<00>
The '2' should not be here. Where did that come from?
Otherwise, this means that the query is being passed to the WINS server
and you are getting a WINS response.

Yeah, that's not going to do much for you.

Don't think it will help...
Take a look in the Browse.dat file on the Samba box and see if you find
an entry of CEMNTER. Your goal is to find the IP address of that box.
