[Samba] win98 browsing problem across VPN subnets

I've setup the e-smith server as the PDC.  I've setup the remote clients to use this server for WINS, and to logon to NT DOMAIN.

The remote clients can't see the PDC shares from network neighborhood, but the shares can be mapped by running \\server_name\share_name

Any ideas?

I have tried configuring all PC's to be on the same workgroup and setup sharing, but still each site can only see the pc's connected on it's that site.
