if the DC is a SBS then there are additional policies for windows firewall at the domain level, you might want to disable this policy.

sirexilon,
By domain policy do you mean a domain group policy? You can disable it using the WinXP SP2 administrative template. It's under Computer Configurations > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile... set "Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections" to "Disabled"

Ok I don't have that.
As far as i can go is this:
Computer Configurations > Network > Network Connections > 
and inside there I have the Internet Connection for the DNS. .... thing that's all I have there.

If you look at the group policy settings spreadsheet, you'll see it should be there:

But like I said, you need the XP SP2 Administrative Template loaded. You can download the adm templates here:
