As Gareth says, the far more important question is how you do your name to
address resolution.  I have just done a quick test on both NT and AIX.  I have
DNS and DNS knows a system as brick.skills-1st.co.uk.  On each architecture, I
created a seedfile with the name BRICK (upper case, not fully-qualified).
Delete the node and both NetViews refind brick.skills-1st.co.uk.  Changing your
seedfile alone will have no effect at all.

You don't say whether your NetView is Unix or Windows - this can make a big
difference as it is much harder for YOU to control the name-to-address space in
a Netbios environment.
