Our server is Windows 2000 server sp 4 , the one client PC is a XP pro. All the other 4 are Windows 2000. The XP Pro PC has a problem reconnecting to the Mapped drives after a reboot?

I have recently setup this XP Pro PC on a Server 2000 network and I am able to join it to the domain with no problem. After a reboot and once I attempt to log back into the domain, its takes about 2 minutes to log back in and there are no errors at this time. The problem comes in when you try to access the data in the mapped drive.
It freezes up the 'my computer' screen, and the only way to get it to work on the network again is to remove it from the domain by joining it to a workgroup and then restarting it and then joining it back the domain. Once it is functional on the domain, I am able to log off of that user and log back on with no problem. But if I restart this computer and try to access the data on the network drives it freezes up again.
I am changed out the network card, changed out the data cable, copied the user settings from a working active directory account, changed the motherboard battery.
Please let me know what you think the problem is and how I can fix it.
