browsing domains as opposed to every single pc in the forest

    hi all!

    okay, so how can i view the network like in xp? what i mean is: in xp, you
    right-click 'my computer' and select 'explore.' then expand 'my network
    places.' then expand 'entire network.' then expand 'microsoft windows
    network.' from there, you see a list of all the domains in the forest. (i
    work at ucla. the root is and there are hundreds of domains under
    that. i manage only a few of them).

    in vista (rc1), you don't see anything if network discovery is off. but if
    it's on, it just lists every single freaking pc it can find on the whole
    freakin' campus, without discretion. this is just so unwanted and
    unnecessary, i can't believe it. but, the way things are laid out now (god, i
    hate the new network view!! maybe i'll get used to it in like 5 years...), i
    can't find any way to make this behave the way i want, which is: just show me
    the roots of the domains, like in xp. if i want to discover deeper, i'll
    expand it, right? who's with me? c'mon guys, you know i'm right!
