Goup Policy Problems

Windows Server 2003

I'm currently configuring a new Server 2003 box.  Roles include DC, DHCP, DNS, AD, File, Print, ect.  Nothing special.  I have a test computer Running Vista connected to the new Domain working perfectly.  Startup scripts for mapping drives works, deployed printers, permissions all work correctly.  I just switched over a Windows XP SP3 box and it is not utilizing the GP.

When i run gpupdate /force on the XPSP3 box it says it completed successfully, however when i run gpresult, i get the error "the policy object does not exist"  DNS is manually configured for the DC first, however it is currently not using DHCP.  Thoughts?  I've been fighting this thing all morning.

On a separate computer running Windows XP, it mounts the mapped drive, however it does not deploy the printers.  The printers are deployed in the computer config, not user.
