domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 34 #YMMV
domain logons = yes
wins support = yes # really need to have a WINS Server if you don't
# have one, then this PDC should be WINS Server
# or #
wins server = ip.address.of.other.server # need a wins server
On windows computer - either manually or via dhcp, however you
accomplish tcp/ip setup, you should point WINS (netbios) server to the
ip address of the PDC (or other server that is providing WINS)
