OK... I'll try this when I get some time.  The primary problem with this 
is that we have >50 subnets and it will be somewhere else I have to keep 
this list updated...

Should what I'm doing already work, though?  I haven't tried this with an 
NT WINS server, to see if it is a Samba problem, 95 problem or browse
