For startup (win 9x) you must put wins in place. The Netbios node type is
covered in a prev thread.
You can do a include statement in the client lmhosts file that refers to a
lmhosts file at the DC for (example the netlogon share or on a random
server) for scaling issues.
Older Windows boxes make lousy browsing masters. They elect all the time,
startup/shut. Also the LANMAN processes are not that tuned for that role.
So putting NT on the segment (for file/print) trough multi-home or vlan tags
is recommended, sure when there are al lot of win 9x clients. Make that
WINS, and you are OK.
I've seen that work fine.

You all remember my very simple campus network re-design that I've been
helping out with? It sure has been keeping me humble. ;-)
So we upgraded the single subnet to two subnets and two VLANs.
Everything is working OK except for Windows networking. The PCs on the new
subnet can't find a domain controller for authentication.
So, you can feel free to yell at me for not gathering more information on
the symptoms, but the client hasn't told me much. ;-) But does this ring a
bell with anyone? Are there standard recommendations on how to handle this
in a subnetted VLANed internetwork.
I'm not too well informed on Windows networking. My co-author wrote that
chapter in my troubleshooting book.
Thank-you so much!
