(1) Perhaps you didn't logon correctly. If you press the escape key in the logon window (when win95 boots up) or if you give in an unvalid username or an unvalid password, you won't be able to look into Network Neighborhood.
(2) Can't help you with the modem question.
(3) You need ipx/spx only if you want to access a novell server. AFAIK, windows always uses a little bit netbeui, even if you don't install the protocoll. Sometimes with netbeui you can better look for other computers in the network neighborhood. We've installed TCP/IP and netbeui. Windows does some things over TCP/IP and some things over netbeui on our computers.
(4) Without NT server you can only share objects with a password. You can't tell windows to whom you want to share it. With NT server you can tell the NT server, which users exist on the network and which user may do what with the NT server. Then on the client workstations you can login as a specific user. There are no passwords for shares any longer. You can access the shares that are shared for the user you logged in. And if you add a share yourself you see a list of all users and can tell windows who may access the share and who not.

If the problem is intermittant, it rules out a lot of things. Make sure the host system you are trying to connect to via Network Neighborhood is booted and correctly setup. Is it also a Win95 machine? How many computers on the network?

1)Change your protocol to Netbeui (see 3) and map all the systems to each other.Network Neighborhood won't 'browse' until it sees a broadcast from the other systems - the mapping will force this.

2)Make sure you have Dial-up Server installed on the system you're dialing (you can get it from MSPLUS for Win95,or use Win98 - it's included) and change to Netbeui (bind it to your Dial-up Adapter on both systems) - Dial-up Server doesn't support TCP/IP.

3)Netbeui was developed for just your type of network - Windows peer-to-peer - and is the most efficient protocol to use.
It's big disadvantage is that it can't be routed,but you don't need that here.
IPX/SPX was developed for connecting to/using Novell networks.
TCP/IP was developed for joining networks using different hardware/software architectures (like the Internet).

4)NT Workstation is simply a subset of NT Server - it lacks the server-related modules (Security,Datacomm,Multiple threading,etc.) but otherwise is the same OS.

Win95 can take up to 15 minutes to see other computers on the network via Network Neighborhood.  It can take that long for the master browser to see it and pass along the information.  Use the Find/Computer command on the Start button to search by name for the other computer, or else wait 15 minutes after turning on the Win95 computer.  

You asked about the difference between NT server and workstation - a LOT!  Server has more capability, mostly related to system security, DHCP, and backoffice functions.  If you're just running normal apps like Word or playing games, just get Workstation.  Note that Server will not install without a NIC card.

Please refer to my earlier answer (2): Since you can't use TCP/IP,there ARE no DNS numbers.
-Install Dial-up Server on the system to be called,set Type of Dial-up Server to Default or PPP...,un-check 'Require Encrypted Password',Share it's hard drive in My Computer.
-On both systems bind Netbeui to Dial-up Adapter in Control Panel - Networks (Add - Protocol - Microsoft - Netbeui),also add if necessary Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Print Sharing.
-On the calling system,My Computer - Dial-up Networking - Add New Connection: give it the phone number of the other system.
-On the calling system,right-click on the new connectoid,Server Types: UN-check IPX/SPX and TCP/IP.Leave all other settings as-is.
-Leave all passwords blank for now,until you get it going.

Win95/98 can handle only one dial-up connection at a time.NT can handle up to 256 simultaneous connections.

A Domain Name Server (DNS) matches internet names (www.anything.com) to the actual IP address (222.111.333.444)- these sites can actually only be accessed using the IP address - the names are just a convenience to make them more descriptive and easier to remember.

'Primary' just means there's 2 of them - in case one goes down.

You only need these addresses for routable protocols - TCP/IP or IPX/SPX. Netbeui is happy with just the system's name,since it isn't routable and hence won't be going 'outside',where it would need more than a simple name.

Aft - please re-read my 12/13 post: to connect 2 computers over a modem using Win9X,you use Dial-up server,which CAN'T USE TCP/IP,so there are NO DNS numbers to fill in.
