Thanks Rob.  The reason I ask is that for the past couple of weeks, we
have been having ungodly slow logon times in our Citrix environment.  No
one can figure out why.  We have a consultant who came in and he wants
to decrease network traffic by stopping WINS altogether.  That just
sounds wrong to me.  Really really wrong.  We have about 550 NT machines
out there, most of which have the computer browser service disabled
(although one of our other genius consultants wants us to enable it on
all the machines).  I'm afraid of the day that WINS is stopped.  I'm
taking off that day.
