General question sinve we're on the topic of 
browsing lately.

Here's my setup.

Windows NT 4.0 client logging into network via PPP connection.
  - DNS server set
  - WINS server for network defined as well.

In order to browse, I set the client to be a member 
of the same workgroup as the WINS server. The WINS server 
is the DMB. Now I can get a complete of workgroups 
registered with the server and browse them correctly.

My question is this: Is there a more general way to 
get this to work? In other works, I would like suggestions 
to get browsing to work other than setting the workgroup 
of the client to match the workgroup of the WINS/DMB server.
