Ohhh, yes, yes, yes.  Now that you mention it, id like to support the idea
of having a 'simple' workstation/desktop like configuration.  I'm sure
there's lots of people tha want a full-blown PDC setup when they install
samba, however for the most part, you don't *need* this :)

At the last LAN party I was at/helped host, I ended up spending a few
hours (which sucks :D) digging up and adding these three options to my
smb.conf so that it would play nice with all the 2k/xp/98se boxes;

    preferred master = no
    domain master = no
    local master = no

Not really a big deal, as honestly anyone that installs and uses samba,
should be configuring there smb.conf properly... but well :)
