Unhappy samba netbios problem

hi everybody
maybe this had been already asked but i couldn't find it
i have a netbios problem with my samba
i can't access it with the netbios name, but i can access the shares with the servers ip address
here is my smb.conf:

netbios name=file-server
domain master=no
wins support=yes
name resolve order =wins lmhosts hosts bcast

directory mode=0777

i also have some nt machines on the network so i don't want samba to be the domain master
