DCDIAG error

I'm about to upgrade a domain from 2000 to 2003 and wanted to get rid of any DCDIAG and NETDIAG errors.... when i run DCDIAG i get the following error on all 3 of my DCs... Can anyone tell me what it means?  I do have Windows 98 clients still so i do need WINS servers. (i have 2 currently)  My domain is running smoothly right now, but i am concerned about these errors:

Starting test: systemlog
   An Error Event occured.  EventID: 0x40011006
      Time Generated: 11/11/2004   10:26:40
      Event String: The connection was aborted by the remote WINS.

Hi
This usually means there's a problem with wins replication. Are your wins servers configured for replication with the correct existing wins servers - maybe an idea to check as if there's a replication partner in there that no longer exists you can get this error. You can also get it where there a firewall or connectivity issue amongst other hings. DCDiag checks the event logs and reports on errors listed in the logs. For it to come up clear you may well need to resolve the issue, then clear it from the event logs,
