What error message are you getting, are you trying to joining it to the domain?

Try pre-staging the computer account in Active Directory, and changing the DNS server in the tcp/ip properties of the vista machine to the domain controller's.

hope this helps..

To add your VIsta business machine you need to make sure you got all the latest patches for your SBS server and your Vista machine.

Make sure the Vista updates are installed on the SBS server
Run the SBS connectcomputer wizard on the Vista computer to rejoin it to the domain.
