I have no idea whether what I am going to tell you makes any sense in the M$
world, as I am
much more of a UNIX person...but to do this in unix, you start by making
changes to a file
called services, and this file exists in the microsoft world...
whether the functions are hard coded and the file is just there for
reference, I have no idea....

Maybe you could make changes in this file, copy the port 139 line and change
the port, then
comment out the port 139 line and reboot...I doubt though whether its going
to be that easy!!
