I am having a problem.  I am unable to veiw my workstations through network neighborhood.  

Box Config:
Windows 2000 (DC)
WINS
DNS
Dual NICs ( I installed the Second Network Card this past weekend for load balancing)

I am able to join workstations to the domain and I can map network shares without any problems.  For some reason though it will not allow me to browse the network.  Can Someone help me out.  Thanks.

Windows uses NETBIOS broadcasts to find neighboring PCs.  NETBIOS over TCP/IP needs to be enabled on the box you are using and the computers you are looking for. Is this enabled?  Does NETBIOS browsing work on any other computer?

Yes NetBios is Enabled over TCP/IP.  I figured out what the problem was.  As mentioned above I installed the additional NIC this past weekend.  My first NIC was Assigned x.x.x.10 and the new NIC  I installed was getting its address from the DHCP server as x.x.x.3    I never set up the Team for the two NIC's.  Once i established the team I cleared the DNS entries and rebooted the system.  Everything is working correctly now.  Thanks for thr reply.  Since no one else replied to this question, I will give you the points.  Thanks for your help.
