How can I access Windows Server 2000 from Windows Vista?

Hello! I am trying to access Windows Server 2000 from a PC where Windows Vista Professional is its OS. Both computers are registered into a domain network (LAN) and the computer where Windows Server 2000 is installed is acting as the Fileserver of the LAN. While trying to access the fileserver from Windows Vista PC I receive errors related to access permission; even if the user has been granted full access!

Any ideas?

Do you mean Vista Business? Only Business or Ultimate can join a domain.

Is the 2000 server the DC? if not, what the DC OS?

 I've found that turning off IPv6 in the Vista network properties can fix a lot of connection issues with pre Vista/Serv2008 systems.
