XP RDP authentication error

I have problems with a remote connection from my XP system to a remote SBS Server.

Initially I was unable to make the VPN connection because whilst I had service pack 3 installed I had not enabled network level authentication. Having edited the registry to allow this the VPN connection works but RDP fails with an authentication error 0X80090303

The last comment has a broken link on the web page.

I have persuaded the server support to disable network level authecation and I can now connect.
