But can a Windows 95 machine be a *domain* master browsers and not just
a local master browser for a particular subnet?
My Windows 95 machines don't appear to become domain master browsers -
only when they're in a domain/workgroup with a domain master browser do
all the workgroups show up in Network Neighbourhood.
