Interesting observation, and I'll keep that in mind for the future. Although 
this wasn't the case on the aforementioned XP Media Center laptop. It's odd 
these days to find a system running NetBEUI, not to say that it doesn't 
happen, but unlike yesteryear it's not part of a default install.

I am a little suspicious about the Media Center editions having a few extra 
tweaks in this area. Seems Samba should not lose these elections by default.
