This sounds exactly like the problem I am getting when using WinXP Pro as
client. I believe it is something trivial I may have changed with the
workstation but like yourself I cannot get it to log on to the domain, but
can get it to join the workgroup, and I have had it working prior to this.

If you find the solution would you please post it here as well!
