We have here on Campus multi-subnet & multi-workgroup net and are having
problem browsing.  On a search for a solution I stumbled up on this :

Quote from O'Reilly's  new Samba Book:

Windows 95/98 machines cannot become OR EVEN CONTACT a domain master browser. 
The Samba group feels that this is a marketing decision from Microsoft that
forces customers to have a least one Windows NT workstation (or Samba server)
on each subnet of a multi-subnet workgroup.

Is this realy true that we need a Samba (or NT) server on each subnet for
each workgroup ???
