It sounds like either this client computer (not as likely) or that server with the share (more likely) has a DNS issue.  Has it been rebooted, and do other shares on that particular server work properly?

1. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908370
2. If this is a DFS share (looks like it) and you logged in with cached credentials to the client you may experience this error.
3. Have you tried flushing the DFS cache (Dfsutil /pktflush and Dfsutil /PurgeMupCache) on the client?
