  Finally solved this one.

  You must have an account on your XP box that has a user AND password the are exactly the same as the NT Server 2003.

So these are the steps then for remote debugging ASP .Nt 2.0 Web Applications

1) Create Account Bob on XP box - log off log on
2) Create Account Bob on Server - log off log on
3) Install ASP.Net 2.0 on Server
4) Install Remote Debugging from the VC 2005 CD on the Server
5) On Server Run msvsmon.exe from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\Remote Debugger\x86
6) On XP turn off your firewall
7) Under XP go to LocalSecuritySettings - LocalPolicies - Security Options - Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts - set this to "Classic"

Wooohoo Remote Debugging

I hope this saves you 2 days as that what it took me to figure it out.
