I think you are dialing into your firewall.
Check the deny counts with ipfwadm -Ile & -Ole and see if you're denying
packets that aren't accounted for.
I've used ipfwadm on dial-in & dial-out machines and had to have
a seperate set of rules for each ip connection.  It got so complicated, I
set up a directory in /var/run to add/delete the rules as seperate files
as the connections are made/dropped and execute them in order
out of ip-up & ip-down (Linux).  It got tricky.

Also, as far as I know, only NT allows roaming profile login over
dial-up (there's a check box on the login display).  I could be wrong.
95 & 98 you've already logged in when you dial the remote network.
We always keep the notebooks in a workgroup that's the same name
as the domain, rather than try & have the notebook in the domain.
That has always worked to update browse lists (eventually).
