I actually told Samba at setup to act as a Wins server.  I have my 
Astaro firewall DHCP telling my clients that Enoch is the Wins server. 
That's all i did though.  i did not setup or tweak anything else yet as 
i wanted to get DNS setup.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
