Yes, and every Windows machine in subnets served by DHCP automatically
gets configured to point to it.

_However_, it's a Samba implimentation of WINS.  Since Microsoft is so
"closed", Samba can't syncronize with NT WINS servers at this point in
time.

The IP address of the WINS server is going to change next week ...  But
I'll just update DHCP, and everything should work fine (since no one
really should have hardcoded it).

Currently, it's 132.198.101.60
Next week, it will be 132.198.101.66

Why?

mga.
