I'm having trouble with my samba implementation and have determined it's 
broadcast addresses are not matching.   but just figuring out what 
win2000 is using for it's broadcast hasnt been so easy.

I'm using 10.11/16.  the server is at with broadcast
the clients get 10.11.2.* from dhcp which also is also set to tell them 
to use for broadcast but they're not.

I've "nmblookup -B 10.11.etc.etc client"  with everything that I 
consider reasonable and no clients will respond.  255.255, 0.255, 1.255, 

anyone have a clue what kind of broadcast kludging windows is doing to me?
