Cannot map a drive from XP Home workstation to Win 2003 SBS

Here's the situation - I'm replacing a Windows 2000 server with a Windows 2003 server. I have 2 win 2K pro workstations, and 1 XP Home workstation (i know, I know) I'm sharing a folder on the 2003 server, and giving the appropriate rights to a successfully map a drive to this folder. On the 2 win 2k workstations, it works fine, but the XP home pc will not do it. For some reason, while attempting to map the drive, it asks me for a username and password, so I use the user name that I gave rights the the folder (which is also the user on this XP machine) and it still wont take it. The only user it will take is ADMINISTRATOR, I've even added the user to the administrator group on the server, and STILL wont take it - like I said the only user it will allow me to use is the name admininstrator and that password. Not sure why this is happening. To add to it, I can still connect to the Win2K server from this XP Home workstation just fine!

Is this a domain or workgroup?
