I added a Windows 98 workstation to our NT domain.  From the 98 machine, I can map drives and browse the network.  But, the machine name doesn't show up in server manager or network neighborhood.  What do I nedd to do?
Thanks,

make sure Netbeui is loaded in your network properties. it is the microsoft protocol for workgroups, and allows machines to show up in network neighborhood.

right-click on network neighborhood
select properties

do  you see netbeui-> and then the name of your lan adapter?

if not:
click "add"
double click "protocol"
click "microsoft" in the left hand panel
click "netbeui" in the right hand panel and ok your way out.

that should do it

Best of Luck

Adding Netbeui did not work.  The computer name still does not show up in server manager and network neighborhood.

look under the properties for netbeui.....there are settings for browse master. try changing those....often they can cause problems.
also, try enabling file and print sharing for microsoft networks...you don't have to actually share anything. just add the service

Enabling File and Print sharing did the trick, thanks Rick!

Did you make a new user account in user manager for domains

When win98 boots enter new account name and password to log onto domain

Your 98 machine won't show up unless you have activated "file and printer sharing" in the 98 machine and selected either "I want to share files" or "printers" or both.
