netBIOS and WINS option in Samba

HI
for a peer-to-peer windows-XP based Network, is it necessary to set a netBIOS and Retrive WINS Server via DHCP.
While the server has **static ip, subnet mask, and name server address **and it has no interface with DHCP.
while its opensuse 11.1 with Samba 3.2.7-11

Simply: no
Delete the line retrieve wins ser…
You don’t have to have a line: netbios name = … either (It will default to the hostname)
