What protocols are you using? If you are only running IP is your DHCP and WINS servers running?
I general recommend using NetBeui for workstation to server connections, then you dont have to worry too much about the local naming servers, just make sure that it is installed on the server and the clients

We'll need nore information to get this solved.
Check device manager and make sure your NIC isn't disabled.
Can you get to the network hardware and see you have green lights on your NIC and on the switch or hub betweeen you and the server?
Can you ping your domain server?
Are you on the same network?
Have you tried logging in under another account?
Is the problem that your NT machine does not have a machine account in the domain?
