It might. I'm still digging into the inner workings of browse sync. I've
heard (on IRC the other day) that W/9x browse sync doesn't work reliably
anyway. I need to do a lot more digging. Unearthing things that others
already know and have moved beyond.
Anyway, setting up without smbd works okay if you're just doing NBNS
(WINS). I need to verify the DMB claim.
Thanks for checking.
