Domain login - Not validated by a server

  I'm trying to build the Bart's boot disk to work in our domain. Everything seems to be working fine until it comes to logging into the domain.

"You were logged on, but have not been validated by a server. THerefore, you may not have permission to use some network resources."

After I receive this message I attempt to map the drive using the "msnet" command on the Bart's disk. It comes back with a message "The computer name specified in the network path cannot be located."

At the prompt in bart's dos window I can ping this computer, so I know it's able to be seen.

I'm running this with-in a VMware workstation mapping back to my own PC's second drive. The drive is shared and everyone has full rights until I get it working.

    Tried several things....
    domain login now works fine... It's the drive mapping that isn't working.

    Using LOCAL PC administrator
          Tried net use v: \\ipadd\share
          Tried net use v: \\name\share
          Tried adding an entry into lnhost file then both net use commands again.
    Tried logging into the domain using a fully qualified domain name then mapping.

    More ideas?

    In my case I was trying to map to my own PC, Win XP pro. I needed to turn on 'netbeui over tcp/ip" and I was able to map.
