server 2008 standard no xp stations in ad

I have a small test environment running the following components:
server 2008 standard configured as dc in a vm environment as guest with name dc-2k8
xp-client as a vm guest
xp-client xp-sp3 with all updates
w7 client with all updates
logged into the domain weilaender.at on the dc-2k8
The problem is now that I found only the w7 client in the ad, the xp clients are missing.
I can ping from the clients to the server  and vice versa via dns-name dc-2k8.
On the clients I have made static address, dns points to the server and all stations are connected to the domain.
If I do an nslookup from the w7 client: nslookup dc-2k8
Server: Unknown
Address: 192.168.90.200   (the adress of the dc)
Name: dc-2k8.weilaender.at
Address: 192.168.90.200
XP-Clients: I try to translate from german
*** Name of the server for the address 192.168.90.200 could not be found
non existant domain
*** Standardserver are not available
Server: unknown
Address: 192.168.90.200
Name: dc-2k8.weilaender.at
Address: 192.168.90.200
It seems to be a dns problem but I have no idea whats wrong in the configuration of the PCs

Are your Clients DNS IP addresses are set to WINDOWS Server 2008 DNS if not set it and make sure that the DNS Server is up and running and is replying to the client requests.

Make sure the Windows 2008 Server only points to itself in DNS in the TCP\IP properties. The clients should only be pointing to the 2008 server for DNS.

After creation of a reverse lookup zone it worked fine. The other points from vikshi and dariusg have been done already before I asked my question.
thank you
