Viewing domain in W2kPro in the same way as WinNT4 Workstation

We have recently bought some new machines with Win2000 pro on them. Up until now we have been using Windows NT 4 Workstaion. I have setup and configured the Win2000 PC's fine except for one small, annoying problem... When I go into My Network Places I get the icon for "Entire Network". I then have to go down another couple of layers to select my domain (we are on a WAN). I have set a shortcut in My Network Places to our domain but can I view our domain as default when I open My Network Places?? It's nothing major, just annoying, but if anyone could help or let me know that it has to be set the way I have it I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

I have created a shortcut, I was just wondering is there a way to view all the pc's in my domain by just opening My Network Places without having to use a shortcut. If there isn't that's fine it is just a query.
