Not sure.

This happens to be something that we're checking into currently.  It's all
in the published docs in one form or another, so...


The latter two are not documented in older docs, such as Leach/Naik.  They
are, however, documented on Microsoft's website in a variety of places.

You say that 0x104 and 0x105 are the same, but they do differ.

Both 0x105 and 0x106 have an 8-byte FileID field (which is supposed to
uniquely identify the file *on the server*).

0x102 and 104 don't have the FileID field, but they do have space for the
file short name.

There are a couple of other questions, such as whether or not NT supported
0x105 and 0x106, that we have to answer.  Remember that [MS-CIFS] covers
Windows NT3.51 and NT4 server implementations.

Anyway, the answer is in the works.  It would be better (for me) if'n this
sort of question went through the channels that that Andrew Bartlett was
working on setting up.  :)
