Hi all,

I have a network spanning over 3 subnets, connected by routers (approx. 150 
Win 9X/NT/XP machines). Currently we are running a large workgroup, and I am 
considering migrating it to a domain. Since the users are always complaining 
about the browsing problem (long time in connecting to share, slow in 
browsing etc), so I would like to know if migrating to a domain will somhow 
help in the efficiency of browsing? Besides, if I turn on the domain 
settings in the Samba server (i.e.  domain master = yes, domain logons = 
yes, and some create user/machine & netlogon share stuff), will there be a 
great influence in current users?
