Cant connect win2k pro to sql 2005

Moved from sql 2000 on win2k server, to SQL 2005 0n Win2k3. All XP machines connect just fine, while all win2k pro machines do not.
Network connection is fine (TCP/IP), as we are able to map drives and so on.
The Error we get is: "Specified SQL Server not found"

You need the latest version of MDAC, which might not be installed on your 2000 machines.
