Hi victorbx,

Please clarify

If you mean my computer NO
If you mean my network places the only if you expand, entire network > your domain/workgroup name YES

hang on that is incorrec you SHOULD see windows 2000 servers

Computer accounts
Every computer running Windows 2000 or Windows NT that joins a domain has a computer account. Similar to user accounts, computer accounts provide a means for authenticating and auditing the computer's access to the network, and access to domain resources. Each computer connected to the network should have its own unique computer account. Computer accounts are also created using Active Directory Users and Computers.

You can try something else:
From AD Users and computers, right click your domain name and search for computers.
do not put anything in the search field and it will come up with all computers in your domain (that is the ones that have an account: nt, 2k, xp, 2003).

If you don't know in which OU they are, close the search window. From menu "View" in the management console, make sure that "advanced settings" (or just "advanced", I can't remember the exact name) is selected.
Run the search again. Right click the computer, select "properties" and go to the tab called "Object". It will tell you where the computer is.
