There is a time and/or date difference between the client & the server.

Client PC cannot connect to a member server that is running Windows Server 2003, both are members of AD,  This is the error: There is a time and/or date difference between the client & the server.

Check the time zone on the client and set it to sync the time with your AD server, if possible.  If not, manually set the time on the client to be within a few minutes of the server.

This is by design.  You need to make sure the two machines are within about 5 minutes of each other.  If you can't find anything overt, make sure both machines are in the same time zone.
The clients and member servers should be pulling time from the PDCe. Make sure you have all your servers setup correctly. Here is a good blog post that explains how everything works and should be setup.

w32tm.exe /resync will do is your client PC or Server is not peroperly fetching the time from your NTP server
