  you could untar:


  and it would work if your smb.conf pointed to a valid WINS server.
  ( you'll get gripes about missing codepages without the codepages
    from the tgz in /usr/local/lib/samba/codepages )

  if any of your windowses are able to provide WINS serverness, that
  would be the way to go( HDD space-wise ), probably.

  if its a bunch of unruly w95 machines, you'd likely be running
  at the very least nmbd; nor sure if nmbd will run w/o smbd also; 
  but smbclient -M <IPAddr> instead of smbclient -M <NetBIOS-Name> 
  from here at the moment is failing with "session request failed", 
  whereas w/<NetBIOS-Name> is succeeding ok with just the two files
  listed above present and accounted for ( because different machine
  is WINS server ).
