bjessupConnect With a Mentor Commented: This is a link to another page that involves Windows XP,  the accepted answer for this problem might work for you also.  The problem you describe sounds a bit like a lookup problem, but I will investigate further.
What specifically is slow?  Is the initial access slow, the data transfer, or both?  By this I mean, when accessing a remote machine, is it slow initially and then fine afterwards?  Or is the whole thing slow throughout?  Have you made any changes  to your network/the XP machine prior to this slowdown?

For example, you can rename it to:

DISABLED {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

This change prevents the browsing computer from checking for scheduled tasks on the remote machine before connecting, which is apparently the reason for the slowness.
Check DNS entry for other Winxp pc on the Server.
Check if Pc's is looking at correct DNS server.
Set DNS server ip address in Network Connection properties.
Check to make sure the NIC is configured correctly - make it the same as the Win2K machine.
I believe that my answer above is the correct solution to this problem and i should be awarded the points
