cannot view network

i have just installed windows server 2003 enterprise.

it is an new domain controller, dns and dhcp server.

i have assigned it ip

it says everything is ok, but when i click view network it takes a logtime to show my domain then if i click on my domain to show connected computers, it waits and says that "mynetwork" is not accessible...... the list of server avaiable on this workgroup is not currently available.

i have no ideas why

Do you have the workgroup/domain name set the same on the 2003 server as the rest of the computers on the network? If not set it the same and the problem should be resolved.

i have not got any other computers on it yet.

the DC cannot view itself
In network settings for your server's nic, it sounds like the server has a external DNS server as its first DNS server. Yo u need to point it to it self and then put a real DNS server as the second entry.
