I used tethereal to sniff the packets on a winxp bootup.  My dhcp server
sends the correct information.  It seems like winxp pro never sends back
the <0x03> information which I thought means it was registering itself
with the pdc as able to recieve messages. I booted another computer on
the network into winxp home edition and it DID send back the<0x03> info.
 Very interesting.  

This seems to me to be saying that my winxp pro machines are not
registering themselves as 

0x03 ==  Messenger Service

I can send a message to them if I use -R bcast.

I think I'll need to do some searching of the ms knowledge base.
