I'm domain administrator inside of a Windows 2000 AD Forest model; which consist of 5 domains. This forest model has  2 WINS Servers which is not in my domain; and I will like to know if  I have to setup A WINS Server in my domain to browse and see the entire network using Micrsoft Network Browser (Netbios)

Yes you do. It is my knowledge that a WINS server cannot service requests between domains. Plus having you own local WINS will be better performance wise.

It is my understanding that as long as you have a computer designated as the MasterBrowser you should be able to browse the domain over a period of time (and enable Netbios over TCP/IP) on all the machines.  However, WINS would be a much better choice anyway.
