Although NMAP can do almost anything, one must be open to using several tools.

If they are Windows boxes, this will perform the Net BIOS scan and will compile on Windows or Linux.

Of course, I may be wrong here :)

If it is a windows box and port 137 UDP is open (I know a lot of 
'if's), you can get the MAC from the nbtstat packet.
