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.
