Can someone explain NETBIOS

  Mutant_Llama 15:13 19 Oct 2005

I am looking to take MCDST exam 70-271 and have come across a subject regarding NETBIOS. It advised that it is effectively the computer name but also states a computer can have more than one NETBIOS name. As far as I am aware a computer can only have one name, yet this seems to conflict?

Checked the internet but do not seem to be able to find an answer, can anyone here explain it any better for this poor Noob?

Way beyond me but have you typed NETBIOS into Google

Yeah checked Google, should have explained that when I said I could not find an answer (on the net), I meant I could not find an answer that I could understand =)

I need it in a slightly less techy way, more suited towards a noob =)
