I've personally never used gsambad, however, I used this guide with
success.  I personally didn't use the WINS server part (that's like a
peer-to-peer version of a domain controller, from my understanding)
because my laptop isn't on all the time.

Provided you know what workgroup your xbox is part of, things should be
pretty simple.

Hope it helps,
