I'm trying to let a user on the domain have share access to one of my
folders on my local machine. I know that in order to do this I have to
select the user from the domain provided by my Windows 2003 server. I
am able to do this on 2 machines, but the other 4 for some reason
aren't allowing me to do that. I set up all the machines alike and I
can't figure out what's the problem. Even on those machines that do
work, once in a while when I go into the permissions dialog box and
click on location only the local computer name shows.

Any suggestions? I think it must be a setting with my Windows 2003
server, perhaps dealing with Active Directory. Also, the computers that
seem to work I can access their logs from the server, and get the
message that they can't find the computer on those that it doesn't
work.

XP Pro Edition can join a domain, but XP Home can only use a 'workgroup' name the same as the domain.
