With this minimal config, you only need to start 'nmbd', to let the 
machine answer.

# nmblookup -S myname myname<00>
Looking up status of
         MYNAME          <00> -         B <ACTIVE>
         MYNAME          <03> -         B <ACTIVE>
         MYNAME          <20> -         B <ACTIVE>
         ..__MSBROWSE__. <01> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
         WKG             <00> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
         WKG             <1d> -         B <ACTIVE>
         WKG             <1e> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>

         MAC Address = 00-00-00-00-00-00

 > nbtstat -a myname

If you have special requirements (machine must be member in a domain, 
server in a different subnet than client, etc.) please give some more 
information about your environment and what you want to achieve.
