If you were a frequent visitor of this list, you  would see that the
developers hang out here, too.

This is Superbowl Sunday, so, don't expect too many replys today!

So, the question is, why aren't those machines being reported properly
regarding their archietecture? Are those machines reporting properly their
other variables? 

Here is a complete list of what samba reports with a guest logon from a
linux box.
