The findsmb script uses nmblookup "*" to get the IP addresses of 
machines. This does not always return all machines because of the
timeout. I've run the 2.2.4 version on 2 different subnets. One
returns samba machine, Win98, Nt4.0 and W2K machines. On a different
subnet I only get samba machines even though I know there are other
windows machines present as well.
