Windows XP and Microsoft ISA Server VPN

I have set up a VPN via Microsoft's ISA server and can connect, Join the Domain, and log into the domain fine with any windows 2000 PC's.  I tried it on two Windows XP machines and about 1 out of 20 times it would let me join the domain, and I also had problems logging into the domain, but on Windows 2k, it works fine.  What could this be?

Thanks!

Do you have a DNS server that is set up for the Domain with the proper SVR records? Are you using WINS?
Try enabling Netbios over TCP/IP on the XP:
Enable NetBios over TCP/IP in WIndows XP
Step 1: Turn On NetBIOS over TCP/IP
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network and Internet Connections.
Click Network Connections.
Right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, and then click Advanced.
Click the WINS tab.
Under NetBIOS setting, click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP, and then click OK two times.
Click Close to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.
Close the Network Connections window.

Step 2: Start the Computer Browser Service
Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
In the console tree, expand Services and Applications.
Click Services.
In the right details pane, verify that the Computer Browser service is started, right-click Computer Browser, and then click Start.
Close the Computer Management window.
