Every time I try to add the workstaion to the network, I get "An error occured when configuring networking settings. See your network administrator.' ERROR

I have an SBS 2003 server with about 15 client pc's. Some workstations are XP and some are Windows 7.
I just added a new network printer which I was able to get setup with all workstations printing to it except for one XP workstation. This workstation has been working on the server but was never working correctly. For example, you could not manage it from the SBS server. I think it may have been added to the network without using the 'server/connectcomputer' option.
After adding the new network printer I could ping the printer's IP sucessfully from this workstation, but could not get it to setup.
Since the PC had other network issues I decided to take it off the network and then add it back using the 'server/connectcomputer'. I changed the name of the pc and added it to a workgroup. But when I try to add it back using 'server/connectcomputer' I get the network configuration error.
I have read the other post about this issue but have not been able to resolve the problem.
