I join you a ZIP file where you can find:

- some Microsoft code with some types and defines, and the function
- a wireshark capture file to got a sample

And you can look in http://www.mycplus.com/out.asp?CID=1&SCID=187 the 
FormatNetbiosName function (you need the inversed one, but it can help you).
