NetBIOS error message

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
hey guys.

whenever I start my Mac on OS 9, I get the error message:

A NetBIOS error has occurred.

The Computer Name selected is not recognized by the network or does not match the remote computer. Please verify that both the Computer Name and the Scope ID you are using are correct for the remote machine.

Error #20

Any thought? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    It seems on startup your Mac is attempting to establish a NetBIOS session with another computer. Is it on a Windows network? Is there anything in your startup items folder? I thought NetBIOS was PC specific. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    Yes. My iMac is on a Windows network. It's connected using TCP/IP and I have DAVE v4.0 installed.
