Yes I'm not sure where that's coming from but I should fix that.

Looking back over my smb.conf, I'm not sure why I put that in there back 
when I first set up Samba for our lab.  Maybe at the time I thought it was 
a desirable option for some reason, but from what I read in the 
documentation now it seems that this option is only useful for multi-homed 
machines, which we don't have.

Well I finally got the thing to work!  At least on the one client that I've 
tried it on so far.  What I did was to delete the socket address command 
from the smb.conf, and add 'wins server ='.
