I'm trying to setup distributed transactions between an XP Pro box and a 2003 Server box.

On the 2003 server, component services, my computer has a red arrow icon on it, and seems unresponsive.

I'm trying to ensure NT Authority\NetworkService is the account, but can't even get to that point.  Component Services was working yesterday, not sure what happened.

not that I can see.

Additionally:

I can't right click, choose properties and enable distributed COM.. I get a "Catalog Error" after several seconds that reads as follows:

An error occured while processing the last operation.
Error code 8004E00F - COM+ was unable to talk to the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator
