We have never used a wins server in the past, and I know nothing about it.  
I'll take a good look at Using Samba and see what I can learn.

From my memory of old logs, the box that is causing me grief (a W2K box) was 
always trying to grab the Master status from my server.  I guess that this is 
what is happening here.

So - the log I quoted is from the samba server.  The samba server should stay 
the master browser (fingers crossed).  I'll try adding the samba server IP 
into the wins server line.

Thanks for the suggestion.
