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.

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