There's probably an easy way to do this, but I can't remember ever needing to do it. I've got a machine that's been down and I finally got time to fix. Now that it's working, it's reporting something like "the machine with MAC address 00:01:00:01:00:01 is using my IP". So, I need to be able to easily look at the network and find the machine (host name or netbios name) with that MAC address so I can hunt down the owner and kill... uh, I mean, correct their IP address.

Dead, can I assume NT or 2000?

Since you are having an IP conflict, you obvoiusly know the IP of the machine you are
after

from NT command prompt

NBTSTAT -A 192.168.0.0

replace the 192 address with the address in question and you should get what you are looking for.
