Forwarding NetBIOS packets over a router

I apologize if this is a little off topic, but here goes:
I posted a question a few weeks ago re: the age old question of Browsing,
Subnets, WINS, etc. One response I got was to make sure that my routers
are forwarding NetBIOS packets between the subnets.
SO: I'm no router person; in your experience, is this a trivial task for an
experienced cisco-guy to check/add forwarding of NetBIOS packets? Should I
just turn on forwarding of broadcast packets (I have 3 subnets with less
than 15 pcs per subnet) or will this bring the network to a screeching halt?
Thanks for any help -- I'd like to not sound like *too* much of an idiot
when talking about this stuff with the CIO :)
