comments on diagnostic walkthrough
#1 - #4 ok
#5 returns nothing or rather:name_query failed to find name *
#6 returns (the samba client)
   tmc1> nmblookup -d 2 '*'
   Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
   Sending queries to
   Got a positive name query response from ( ) *<00>
#7 ok and i can mount shares on tmc6 from tmc1
#8 works for full name ( but not tmc1
   it fails with system error 53: network path was not found
	i've tried adding tmc1 to my (tmc37) lmhosts file, no luck. 
	we are not allowed to run our own wins here. 
#9-10 again, works with full name (
    also "map network drive" works if i put in the full name it then
shows tmp being available

any ideas why i cannot "browse" tmc1 from network neighborhood?

cc's appreciated.
