I don't have the full context of the message, so I may be a little off, but 
here's my thoughts.

No, Linux (and hence pptp) does not, directly, support netbios.  However, 
netbios can be encapsulated inside TCP/IP.  In your case, check the 
configuration of your client.  Make sure, under protocols, only TCP/IP is 

My experience has shown it is better to run only one protocol.  TCP/IP is the 
universal one.  There are browsing issues with more than one protocol, and I 
have seen other problems.  With IPX flying around the network, I've seen 
Linux machines (and maybe Windows too; I didn't have a packet sniffer on 
those) drop TCP/IP packets.
