At my university, different buildings have different subnets.  I.E.: my WinNT's machine is 128.54.203.XXX, and my friend's machine in the next building is 128.54.201.XXX. I have a second Linux machine, and am trying to setup a way to allow cross-browsing across the subnets - however, I'm not sure how to do this.  Do I want to setup WINS resolution or make Samba (on my Linux machine) run as a domain master?  And how do I go about doing it?

There is no simple way, except you have a netmask covering all your subnets (but this may not be what you want).

First read Samba's BROWSING.TXT and DOMAIN.TXT. I think it's not recommended
to use Samba as master browser in a domain with {P,B}DCs.
Then read smb.conf about:
   remote announce =
   netbios name =
   domain master =
   local master =
   prefered master =
   wins proxy =
   wins server =
   wins support =
there are a lot of examples in the doc files.

I suggest to setup Samba on gateway between the subnets.
