on the XP box: Control Panel -> System -> Computer Name -> Change...
if i use the workgroup setting of GENWAX.TEST, then i can browse
the server, read and write files, and it seems to be working
fine. if i try to change to a domain setting of GENWAX.TEST, then
it fails with the DNS and SRV record message same as above but
with GENWAX.TEST in place of mydomain.
