Actually, I don't think you need proper wins support for this to work (you 
may want it for other reasons).

Using a command like this:
smbmount //netbiosname/sharename /mntpoint -o ip=

Will always do:
1. connect to the server with ip number
2. tell the server at that ip that the server the client thinks it is 
   connecting to is 'netbiosname' (this is the "called name" in the error 

If the server still won't accept you, then changing the wins info won't
help. When you give an ip option to smbmount it doesn't try to look up the
value for netbiosname.
