A few points to check:
-Check whether your laptop has firewall enabled. This would block your pinging from server.
-Verify that your laptop has your server set as primary DNS server.
-Refresh your server's DNS records by issuing comand 'ipconfig /refreshdns' at server's command prompt.
-At server's command prompt run 'dcdiag /v' and check whether there are any errors.

hope this helps

Be sure you set the DNS on the Windows XP desktop to point to 192.168.0.3 ( the server )
Enable Dinamic Updates in the DNS server.
On the server try to enable Netbios over TCP/IP on the Advanced / WINS tab of the TCP/IP properties.

hi, just to know, when I logged in my laptop I see I have some default restrictions, I'd like to know how can I this account not to see some elements, like the trash bin or some other stuff.

Thanks.
