How do I get SWAT to manage NetBIOS aliases?

  I have samba-2.0.4b running on Solaris 2.5.1 - Works great.
  I want SWAT to manage the Netbios aliases that I have setup, but it
insists on messing only with the smb.conf file.
  Is there a way to "point" it at the include file instead of the smb.conf?

  Machine Name: enterprise
  Netbios Alias: constellation

  The /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf file has no shares or printers defined,
but it does have the netbios "netbios alias = constellation" and the
"include = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%L" .
  The smb.conf.constellation file contains the shares and printers for the
\\constellation server.
  This all works great - NO QUESTIONS RE: Netbios Aliases - This is a SWAT

  When I use SWAT to manager the server, all I see is the smb.conf file,
not the smb.conf.constellation file.
