Post bcast name resolution


My lan is a Windows 2000 / NT4 combined domain network.
DHCP sometimes generate ip conflicts & DNS fails name resolutions.
I'm a Gentoo Linux user.
My samba works fine 'couse i've set the bcast (broadcast) name resolution.
How can i set the bcast resolution in all TCP/IP environment?
The DNS now works only for internet resolutions. (i must keep it)
Hi friendz!

DHCP should NOT be making IP conflicts unless you have two reservations set for two different machines? Which i don't know if thats even possible, other than that is there a static address thats in your pool to be given out for DHCP?

mmmm...

I know only one thing: Samba & Windows clients work fine using broadcast & "masterbrowser" name resolution.
A good solution is resolve DHCP & DNS server problems but...
I'm not the lan administrator.. so I can't touch anything in my net...
I can try to do something in my gentoo client... but it seems that i've nothing to do...
bye
