[Samba] getting rid of NetBIOS

Is it possible to run a samba server strictly over TCP/IP?  (i.e. without 
NetBIOS) -- I can turn off NetBIOS on win2k but I only see the win2k 
computers which are sharing drives now -- no samba servers.

I'd like to see if this improves my performance since NetBIOS seems stuck 
with small (1 ethernet frame, no fragmentation) packets.
