Confirm that they are in the SBS Computers OU and not the default computers container in active directory.

Make sure the LAN workstation has File and Printer sharing checkmarked in
the properties for the LAN network adapter.

In the Computer Properties | Remote... make sure the Remote Desktop box is
checkmarked.

In the Windows Firewall Exceptions for the LAN workstation, make sure that
Remote Desktop has an exception.  Also, there should be an exception for
File and Printer Sharing.
