Sounds like your global address book has restrictions.  Are you also a member of other distribution groups?  Can you see these groups in the address book?  Do you have admin rights to set up / change group listings?  Can anyone else in the group access this listing?  We need some more input.

I can see all other Distribution Lists except the one that has all members of the GAL in. We are in a mixed enviroment with an Exchange 2003 and 5.5 server. WE are migrating over. My AD account and mailbox is new and mailbox is on the 2003 Exchange server. Users who have had there mailbox created and still on the 5.5 server can see that particular Distribution list. I am and Exchange Admin, withh all rights. I am in the list to "Accept messages from" in the properties of the Distribution List. The Distribution list is not Hidden from the Address book either in the properties.

They mention a difference between Global Groups for Distribution rather than Security.
