Does the XP machine belong to the domain or are you just trying to share files?

The machines are just on a peer to peer network with shared files on the server. Not on a domain.

Then do they all belong to the same workgroup? I don't understand why you have a 2003 Server with no domain. It should be something.local

Yep it is just a workgroup setup, kinda backasswards I know, but that is how they have it setup, and yes all the machines are in the same workgroup.

The next time you get that error, go to the run box and enter the IP of the Server preceeded by 2 \\

\\ or whatever it is and press enter. Do the shares appear?
