you don't wanna do thaaaat.
wins server = ip.address.of.nt_wins_server
wins support = no
workgroup = nt_3.51_workgroup
; the nt server is the browse master and presumably logon server already
domain master = no
domain logons = no
; parameters to beat w95 and nt workstation on its local subnet
os level = 4
preferred master = yes
local master = yes

? don't know. check to see if samba continues to announce to the NT WINS
server every... 12 minutes or so.
it _doesn't_ happen to get marked as "obsolete" after 12 seconds, does it?
looks like there might be a bug here, if anything's wrong. can you run
netmon or tcpdump, grabbing a w95 netbios name registration to the WINS
server, and a samba netbios name registration to the WINS server, and
send them to me (in plain text)?

that would be a bad idea.
