[Samba] Samba and netbeui

Hello all,

  There is still a use for netbeui (non-routed protocol) in the 
network.  If you are using a VPN client that does not allow split 
tunneling, you can still access printers on another local system with 
netbeui.  I would like to remove the windows system and have my print 
shares on my Linux system with Samba.
  Is all consideration of netbeui within the Linux/Samba environment 
gone?  Can someone suggest another way to get printers and file shares 
between a windows system and Linux system without TCP/IP?

Thank you.

Mike Weske
