recently we had our domain controller replaced. after which, a few machines have this problems of applying personal settings taking very long to logon. the weird thing is that on each of these machines, using one profile no problem in logging in, however the user themselves will have this problem when logging in. if profile corrupted, its unlikely that it occurs to a few machines at the same time?
the clients are on xp pro, logging in to server 2003

Check is DNS is configured right in these machines... what happens if you log on locally to the server?

You need to ensure that the ONLY DNS server which is configured on these workstations - either manually or through DHCP - is the IP of the new server. There should be no ISP or firewall DNS server addresses listed.
