Hi,

How are your ip addresses assigned? Are you running a DHCP server to automatically assign IP's to the client computers? If so, what scope options have you set ( ie, is the DHCP server handing out addresses of DNS and WINS servers )?

When you say win 2K, are you reffering to Windows 2000 professional or server?

As asked above, are you running a domain?

Win9x clients require WINS for name resolution!

If you can provide this information, then we should be able to help further!
