check your dns settings again.
on the client if you open a dos prompt and type 'ping {domainname}'  do you get a reply from the server?

Make sure that your workstation is getting an IP Address from your DHCP server.  Then make sure that the DHCP scope has your server listed as the primary DNS server.  Also when you try subsequent logon's do they take just as long?  Sometimes the first time you logon the workstation has to create a new user profile for the domain user.  Creating this new profile on the local machine can take some time.
