Can't access some of my Explorer workgroups

I have a Win2000 server and 50 clients on Win98 SE, TCP/IP installed on both, and the services DHCP, DNS, WINS and Terminal Services. Client for MS Networks is installed; user account on server is fine; access control is ok. But there are six visible workgroups in Explorer -- I just have access the some. Do you have any idea why this is?

This question isn't clear and the sentences don't all make sense. If workgroups are displayed in the network neighborhood, then the clients are not properly configured as members of the Windows 2000 domain. They should also have all of the available updates from Windows Updates. Also, the master browser selection may have selected one of the Win98 clients instead of the Windows 2000 server. You should edit the registry of the Win98 clients so they will not become the master browser.
