Help with unusual XP Event Log message...

I generally use the event logs in WinXP to help
troubleshoot some of the occasional errors here
at our work network. It's a seven machine network,
nothing exceptional, workgroup and T1 access
through hardware firewall.

Today, on one of the machines, in the SYSTEM
event log I noticed two new errors recurring several
times throughout the day that are rather interesting
as they refer to one of our other network machines
somehow interfering with another; here are the
messages: <-- system I'm reading events from <-- Ip referred to as conflicting

-----------------------1st event--------------------------------------
Type: Error
Source: NBT

"The name "SWLD :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address The machine with the IP address did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine."

-----------------------2nd event--------------------------------------
Type: Error
Source: Browser

The browser was unable to promote itself to master browser. The computer that currently believes it is the master browser is LYM-MAIN.

In both messages, the interfering machine is LYM-MAIN, or,;
I'm reading the event log on another machine. Very strange ...

Any input would be appreciated ...
