Slow workstation then authenticating to domain

When I attempt to authenticate a workstation to the domain the workstation becomes extremely slow.  The network is currently setup as a peer to peer network with a 2000 MS SBE server.  The 2000 MS SBE has the DC, file sharing, and exchange server running.  I am trying to change it to a domain environment.  As a P to P it works fine.  As soon as I authenticate a workstation to the domain the workstation becomes extremely slow with everything I try to do on the workstation.  Not just network stuff, but everything, like opening my computer, a local program or a network program.  I have the same results with a win98, win2000 & XP pro workstation.  The rest of the P to P workstations continue to run OK.  Any ideas?  Lew

p2p uses netbios.

a domain setup uses DNS.

Make sure the DNS server is setup correctly. And also that the client machines connecting to the server are pointing to the correct DNS server.

Good luck =)

Will have an opportunity to check DNS the first week of December.  Will let you know results at that time.  Thanks for your answer and patients.
