Netbiosd message in log.

I'm getting the following message, at least once a second:

05/12/2011 17:43:13.591 Firewall: Deny netbiosd data in from to port 138 proto=17

Now I presume that it's my wife's Dell that's polling the network, but is there anything I can do to stop these excessive log messages?

I have file Sharing on, through AFP, so that I can connect my laptop to my iMac. Is that the cause?

Or do I need to tell the Firewall to relax?
