2008 Enterprise Server wont stay authenticated in my 2003 domain

I am builing a new terminal server farm for testing prior to deployment of Server 2008.  I have loaded 3 Enterprise 2008 servers, one is the session broker, the other 2 are members of the farm.  I have a start up script that runs agains the machine to map the N: drive so all user will have this.  It seems like a day after I get everything to work my published apps stop because the N: drive is no longer mapped.  If I click on the drive in my computer it wont connect.  If I browse to the location it asks for credentials.  My question is why do these servers appear to be losing authentication with the 2003 domain.  If I rejoin the servers to the domain,all is well for a day or so.

    Use the netdom command to reset the computer's secure password. Or you can change the name of the server then re-add to the domain.

    We will verify.
    Posting tomorrow with the results.
