I have an XP machine that cant logon to a 2003 server.  All the other machines can log in fine.  The server is a domain controller.  The XP machine gets an error when trying to logon that says the network time and machine time are different.  I dont really understand this nor do I know how to fix it.  Please let me know if you need more info from me.

time is a big factor, kerberos policy states by default if time is greater than 5 min apart you won't be able to log on. find out the time on the server and change clock to that time on xp machine. then use net time to set sntp to the server and resync. you will have to log on locally or through cached credentials. you can also set group policy to set time on the workstations

Don't change the time on your server. Log on locally to the XP machine, change the time to match that of the server. If you can't logon locally for whatever reason, go into the machine's BIOS and change the time there.
Apart from correcting the time, there should be no need to change anything else concerning the time service on either machine. W2k or XP machines that are members of a domain will by default match their time with the DC automatically.
