The problem im having involves an XP Pro workstation, and Windows server 2000.

I cannot join the 2000 domain (; using the XP Pro's wizard.

Although it seems to let me add it using the manual method: ie. WORKGROUP/DOMAIN specification.

And if I add the XP workstation to the domain using the manual method, it doesnt grab any GPO.

Whats wrong? Can someone help me??

DNS resolves fine, I ran netdiag and dcdiag on the DC without problems. (all passed)

I need to get the Add/Remove programs (for network group policy) working .. and nothing lists even though its specified on the servers GPO. (and at the root domain)

Help! :)
