I must add that I myself, any many of the users
in our community have missconfigurations.
I weekly get mail in private asking:
"I can't see my "AlienOS" machine in 'network neighborhood' ?"
"Do you have nmbd running ?" I ask..
"No, thanks it's working now"
Interesting point might be
the fact that it _works_ by using IP.
nmbd don't HAVE to be running AIK.
I guess Windows9x uses somewhat different
method when "mapping" an share, then "browsing" it ?
Maybe Chris H have some ideas here ?

You have _no_ idea of the crazy stuff
we have done with our mashines ;)
