Browsing Windows 2003 Child Domains From An XP Client

Hi People.

I have 3 domain, lets say Domain A, the parent, Domain B one child and domain C the second child.  Both are child domains of the parent domain.  All are on the same geographical location and are connected by an Allied Telesyn AR410 Switch using VLANs to seperate the subnets.
I can ping any host on any domain from any host on any domain.
I can connect to any host on any domain using \\hostname and browse the shares on the host.
I cannot however browse the child domains in Network Neighbourhood from the parent domain, i cannot browse the parent domain from the child domains.
I have tried forcing netbios over TCP/IP this does not work.
There is a 2way transitive trust between the child domains and the parent domain.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.

the easiest way for your browsing list will be to set up a WINS server, which is every server and client using (WINS Settings in TCPIP Settings).
Additional, you should set the WINS Node Type to "0x8" H-Node (this can be done in DHCP Options).
