Hi Bill,

We've been able to achieve browse list across subnets but we use an NT
domain. The local browse master registers itself with the primary 
domain controller as the other local (to a different subnet) browse masters
do, resulting in shared browse lists across subnets via the PDC.

Check out docs/BROWSE.TXT. It's does an excellent job describing the process.
