Unwanted browselists

Perhaps appending a "$" to the end of the share name from the W95
machines will prevent the shares from showing up in (any) browse
lists, as it does in W/NT.  They would still be mountable (permissions
allowing) if one knew the hidden share name, as in "\\machine\share$".
Never tried it on a W95 machine when I had some, now I don't have any
to test it on.  Easy to test, though.
