I agree that this is a solution for some - actually it was a solution
for me when I just required file & print sharing on my small home
network. But now I require the services of a proxy server to share my
internet connection, and this requires IP. This can also be a situation
that would be encountered on a business network, since Netbeui is NOT a
welcome addition to many networks due to it's scalability and
routability issues.
