It will not show there because it is a network protocol, not a device.
Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and right-click your NIC,
select Properties and in the General tab, you will see the installed services and protocols
and if they are bound to the NIC or not.
If NetBios is not there, click Install and then Protocol, then Add and select NWLink NetBios and Click Ok.

Now, it will show up where it is supposed to show up.

Tigsounds is incorrect. I'd post a screencap to prove him wrong, but I don't have the time or inclination.

The fact is that "NetBios over TCP/IP" is a device listed under the Non-Plug-and-Play section of the Device Manager. If it is missing, it will cause the NetBT dependency of the DHCP service to fail to initialize. Removing the dependency from the service will allow DHCP to start, but NetBIOS (via NetBT) will not work.

This thread is a red herring jamming up google searches, and needs to be flagged for future interest.
