    Vista home Premuim
    Here is what I have on my network

    Linsoire Linux, Mandrake Linux, Win2k Serv Pk4, WinXP Home, WinXP Pro, Win
    None of the above could see the vista or vista see them until I enabled the
    netbios over tcp/ip
    Am I correct in assuming that this cercumvents the ipv6 option in vista and
    is there a fix for this?

  2. NetBIOS over TCP/IP is a normal component of Windows file sharing and
    should be enabled.

    Nothing in a typical network requires IPv6, so it can be disabled.

    I'm not sure what it is that you want to fix.
