On  Win9x I issue the command:
nbtstat -a <netbios name>

If <netbios name> is a Win9x machine I got the MAC address of that
machine on the last line of the command output. If it's a samba server
the MAC address is not returned:

MAC Address = 00-00-00-00-00-00

Is there anyone who gest the MAC address back from a samba server?
