Thanks for the response.  I'll check and see if sharing is enabled on the
box.  I didn't know that you had to enable sharing for a machine to show up
in the browse list?  Is this really true for win2k because I have winnt
machines with no shares and they show in the browse list (unless there is
something I am missing).
