can the server ping the rest of the network?  Look at the arp table on the client to see if it shows the mac address of the server.

Do you mean 2003 (like in the subject) or 2008 (like in the body text)?

If your server has dual network interfaces, check that you network cable is in the right socket. :-)

in device manager, are you seeing the network card?  Can you ping the lookback (127.0.0.1)?
