correct.  except remember that nt uses three mechanisms to get round this: 

1) inter-domain trust relationships, which are set up manually by

2) \PIPE\winsrv (whatever) - a query is possible to obtain all workgroups,
i suspect (not confirmed)

3) in network | services | browser, you can manually "add" workgroups.
this results in a "listening" netbios name being added (WORKGROUP<00>) to
the browser.
