Can't browse workstations after Server Setup, NT4 Server on Network

Hello Experts,

I have an NT4 Server that I'll be getting ride of eventually.  Once I put the new Windows 2003 Server on the network, I'm unable to browse any workstations through My Network Places.  The workstations still work fine, but they just don't show up.  It's a problem because I have a third party app that needs to see the workstation for another process.  Any suggestions?

Is the machine on the same subnet as the NT4 server?

The 2003 server will need the following:
* the Computer Browser service running.
* the firewall turned off.
* TCP/IP netbios helper service will need to be running.

This is a great paper that will help you to tansition to your new server:  http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/7/c/57c98fa4-6b3d-4b00-8064-e6dba5401f6c/coexist.doc

Plus what was stated above... I'd suspect the browser service has taken over.
