Cant add user account on networked PC

trying to add a new user to XP PC,
I go into Control Panel
User Accounts
Add
Username say Peter.Pan
Domain I click Browse

I get the following error and have tried this on two PCs
"The program cannot open the required dialog box because no locations can be found. Close this message and try again."

IS IT A DNS issue ?

Does the DNS server has all the SRV records? Otherwise clients can't logon to the domain.

Why are you adding the account on the XP machine? - on a domain you need to add the account on the domain controller in Active Directory users and computers

You don't need to add the user to the XP machine - The need to type their username/password and select the DOMAIN.

I have always added their profile to the PC, I just tried this your way and it doesnt let me log on I can log on with any of the two profiles I have added in the past.

SO what i need help with is why cant I now add a user to the PC I used to the only thing changed was I had to delete and reconfigure the DNS a few weeks ago.
