Windows XP client loosing network authentication

I am having a strange problem.  I am running 10 XP Pro clients in a Windows 2000 Small Business Server environment.  I have one PC that seems like it is  loosing its secure relationship with the domain.  It is fine on start up, but after a period of hours, it claims that the network drive names are already in use when you try to access a mapped drive.  If you map manually, it prompts you for a login to the domian server.  Why would it drop me?  I think that I have DNS problems, because it does take a while to log on.  I dont know if that has anything to do with this issue or not.  How would I find the IP of my DNS Server?  We are using static IPs.  Thanks in advance for the help!

The DNS IP to be used on *all* machines in your domain is the SBS's IP address *only* (on the SBS as well; the IP address, not 127.0.0.1). Then on your SBS, start the DNS MMC, and in the forward lookup zones, delete the root zone if it exists (the single dot, "."); then configure forwarders (in the Properties of the DNS server) to point to your ISP's DNS server.

Thanks,  This helped with the slow login problems... Will using the proper dns setup on the client fix the timeout problem?  (I have already fixed the 15 minute timeout in the registry)


Thanks!
