Multihomed BDC - problem accessing resources

i'm using a multihomed BDC (NT 4, sp3), with one network card (100 Mbits)
connecting to the primary domain controller (NT 4, also the WINS server) and
one card (10 mbit) connecting to a Netware server and some win95
clients(they do not logon to our domain, but on local workgoups). i'm using
tcp/ip as the main protocol and nwlink ipx to connect to the netware.
The problem i'm facing is that i cannot see the win95 clients in network
neighborhood, although using ping to reach them works alright.
note that those win95 clients use static ip's

the solution i came to was using the WINS manager on the PDC and adding
static ip mappings for those clients. after that i could map to their
resources (shared disks) but still cannot see them browsing through network
neighborhood.
NOTE: the Netware server (through which i connect to the 10Mbit LAN) uses 3
network cards and i a afraid that they don't handle ip routing correctly.
but still i can ping them correctly.
Would the problem be solved if all clients logged to an NT domain instead of
using workgroups?

any ideas?

The browser service only works on one network in a multihomed machine.

Have you set up WINS server addresses on the workstations? if not do so, they will take the browse list from the info provided by WINS.
Netbios cannot route between subnets without WINS, so they would not show up in the list
