I have a similar problem with a group of XP machines.  It appears that 
something is causing the Workstation service to die during bootup.  If I 
log in as a local administrator and start the Workstation service 
manually (even though it is set for automatic), then log out, I can log 
in as a domain user and everything works as expected.  The event log 
confirms that the Workstation service is dying during the boot.  This 
problem appeared after upgrading from 3.0.1 to 3.0.4.
