Unable to Connect

With Sp2 there could be issues with inbuilt firewall. Try to turn off inbuilt firewall in Sp2. Try to navigate to the network drive using My computer to see if you can actually access the PST file.
Check for permissions by right-clicking the PST file and going to sharing and security and also go to properties to see if it read only

Then open Outlook
go to file ---> open ---> outlook data file and point to that location again to see if there would be any difference
