[windows2000] Pointing to a secondary WINS server, outside of our network

I work for an agency that is a part of a larger group.  However, we are 
separate, both in function and physically.  For the most part we are separate 
from them.  Since our function is unique and due to the fact that we have to 
satisfy funding requirements that are separate from the larger organization, we 
have separate things like our own network, etc.

But, we're still a part of the larger organization, which also means that our 
payroll comes through them.  They use a product called Kronos, for clocking in 
and out.  In our case, we used a web browser in order to clock in and out.

Well, they have changed the means by which this authentication occurs, and now 
we have to have an account on their network (which we never have needed 
before).  I just spoke with some of their network techs and they told us that 
we have to have both a Novell NetWare and Citrix account.  Furthermore, they 
said that we need to add their WINS server to our Windows 2000 servers, in 
order to make it possible for Kronos to authenticate us.

I don't know how that is going to work.  How do we point to a server that is 
not on our network, and make it an auxiliary WINS server?  And what about our 
own network and all of our external customers, who do not have accounts on 
their system and never will (they are not employees of this organization).
