first of all, most code dealing with file/pipe opening will be moved 
from kernel32 to ntdll (at least the core)
moreover, the SMB code (currently) is more a proof of concept than a 
full implementation of SMB (using SAMBA if possible would of course be 
the internal NTDLL interfaces for handling file systems are likely to 
evolve very shortly
I also assume that you're referring (parly) to NetBios resolution
if so, then copying the code might not be a wrong answer for now
if not, please explain what you want to do in more details
