This rather depends by what you mean by "browsing" ?
You can search using the Search option and select for People In Your Address
Book,  then when the search dialog box comes up the top drop down box (Look
In) can contain Active Directory.

Alternatively if you can create a desktop short cut with the following
command line
%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow OpenQueryWindow

On a final note I would be very wary of people just "browsing" the
directory - they should either know what there are connecting to or use the
find to locate a resource - ask yourself "why do I let people just wander
around my directory?"

1. No Active Directory Icon (cannot browse active directory)

I have created a share and published it to the active
directory as spelled out in several help documents.  I am
experiencing a problem with a XP Pro client machine with
Netbios disabled.  The client machine is part of the
Windows 2000 server domain and can log in sucessfully.  In
windows explorer the active directory icon does not show
up when double clicking on the "Entire Network" icon.  I
can do a search and find the shared folder in the active
directory so I believe everything is setup correctly.

Is this normal?  I would have thought that I would have
been able to browse published items to the active directoy
even when Netbios was disabled.
