WINS will certainly help, especially with the older Win98 machines. For
Win2k and WinXP DNS works much better, especially if they have static IPs.
RedHat includes a copy of BIND DNS on the install media, it's not very
difficult to set up the zone files.
Are they actually joined to the domain? If so then they shouldn't need to
browse and just be referencing the domain controller for the browse list.
Keep in mind that WinXP Home cannot join a domain though.

When I restart the Samba Services apparently everything starts to work fine
again. I tried changing OS Level from 65 to 70 but still no success. Since a
few days, the problem seems to happen every 24 hours and I have to restart
the services everyday. Previously it used to occur every 7 days or so.
