While i agree that NetBEUI is hideous, i think everyone is overlooking 
this statement:

 > The checkbox to use NetBIOS over TCP/IP doesn't exist in the advanced

Does anyone know what that means?  Does this mean it's not available, or 
can't be enabled/disabled?

Peter, what happens when you do a 'net view \\server.ip.address'
