will try this. will the server still register itself with a WINS server
if a line:
   wins server = w.x.y.z
is in the smb.conf

also will clients still be able to map a drive to \\server\share assuming
they can resolver the name "server" via WINS?

any other nitoceable changes when killing nmbd. could do with some docs on 
exactly what nmbd does.

many thanks
