assistance with debian setup


With my Debian install, I'm installing the optional programs selected from the first debian cd and I need some help.

First, (for samba) how do I determine whether my computer "gets IP address information from a dhcp server on the network," and whether "the dhcp server provides info about WINS servers ("NetBIOS name servers") present on the network," and consequently whether a change to my smb.conf file, "so that DHCP-provided WINS settings will automatically be read from /etc/samba/dhcp.conf," and whether the dhcp3-client package must be installed?

Moving on, when prompted to install the grub boot loader to the master boot record, only Windows XP is detected, although I also have slackware, these 3 of which are on separate partitions of the same hard drive. Should I install grub to the master boot record?
