I can't find the doccumentation in my book about it and I need to disable the master browser capacity on a nt4 server I just installed.  This master browser service is about to kill my OS/2 server, and thats just bad.

50 points if correctly answered in the next 10 minutes.  100 points if answered in the next 5 minutes.  30 points otherwise.

Its 12:50 GMT-8 now.

Thanks!

Go to: \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
\SYSTEM
\CurrentControlSet
\Services
\Browser
\Parameters
select "MaintainServerList" value and set to "no"

Close enough for me.

The 10 minute rule was a gross approximation of how long until the OS/2 server noticed the broser conflict and shut down.  It didn't shut down, so the 10 minutes was extended.  It hasn't shut down yet, so the way I see it, you met the 10 minute rule anyways and earned the 20 extra points.  

Thanks.  I hate when easy questions are hard to solve.
