NetBIOS is the protocol and NetBEUI is the 'transportation'. When using
NetBIOS, you have a choice of either 'over NetBEUI' or 'over TCPIP'.
OS/2 and Windoze support both ways, but Samba (unix etc) supports only
'over TCPIP'. The main difference is that 'over TCPIP' it can span over networks
and be routed. 'over NetBEUI' can't be routed, unless you use special software.
If you want to access NetBIOS resources over a dialup when you are
on the road, then you should use "NetBIOS over TCPIP".
Ofcourse the resources must also be shared 'over tcpip' by the server.
My local intranet server shares the resources over NetBEUI and over TCPIP
at the same time, running OS/2 Warp Server for e-b.
