When the world was young, Wolf Paul carved some runes like this:

Are you sure you want WINS support = yes?  Isn't one of your NT 
boxes providing the WINS service?  What about the results of the 
test steps in diagnosis.txt?  Browsing is a function of nmbd (not 
smbd)...  I've never seen the "RPC error" (but we only have one NT4 
workstation machine on the LAN).  More Info?
