event id 4098 - printer name invalid error deploying printers

Hello gang and thanks as always for your time and expertise.
Here's my deal:  I have one laptop out of 24 that will not apply my group policy printers or mapped drives.  I created an image for these laptops and the same image was applied to the other laptops.  The other laptops applied the policies fine.  I formatted this problem laptop and imaged it again but no change.  I reset the computer account and rejoined the domain but no change.  
The only thing the event viewer says is the printers are not applied because the printer name is invalid which is not true.  And again, the same policy has applied successfully to 24 other laptops.  The event id for both the printer failure and mapping failure is event id 4098.  
The printers and network drives are being mapped through user config, preferences.  Anyway, kind of lost as to what the hell is going on.  Your recommendations and advice are greatly appreciated.
We have a mixed enviornment of 2008 and 2003 and the client os is xp sp3.

Nevermind.  A bad ip address was causing this laptop to not resolve the server names where the resources were located.  Aggravating but thank God I checked that.
