Directory shows up in w2k pro not in winxp pro

Here's the thing,

Our DC's are win2003 server running AD. Files servers are win2003 and our domain consists of win2k pro & winxp pro workstations.

on a win2k pro workstation when i go into network neighborhood I can see 2 icons " my domain" and "directory". However on a winxp pro machine I loose the "directory" icon and all i have is the "my domain" icon.

Is there anyway to get the "Directory" back on winxp pro machines.

but according to the article "Directory icon never appears unless you log on as a member of a domain." but i am logging into the domain.

or does that refer to it after I've done the steps?
