Is your network adapter set up with the correct domain suffix?

See figure 8.4 in this guide:

Yes it does. I'm trying to access the share from a windows 2008 machine and the share is on a windows 2003 server if that makes a difference.

It's a netbios problem.

Does the server have a firewall blocking "file and print sharing"?

Is client for microsoft networks enabled on the nic?

are you trying to access the server from a remote location (meaning not on the broadcast domain)?

Are you in a VPN or VLAN configuration?

Is netbios over TCP/IP enabled on the NIC configuration>>TCP/IP>>advanced button>>WINS tab??

There are a TON of things that can cause this. So, we will have to ask a LOT of questions to get to the root cause.
