The second sentence is not true otherwise Samba would not have worked
with 95, 98 and NT which it does.
(And OS/2 etc)
In fact as soon as you installed both TCP/IP and NetBEUI on those win

and put up with it whining about your action. OS/2 always needed
TCPBEUI to be manually enabled to join Samba.
