Does the workstation have the firewall on?

Can the server ping all other devices in the network but this workstation?

Also, is File and Print sharing allowed in the Windows firewall? Do you have a different firewall installed? We use Norton Internet Security and I have to run the firewall's network detection wizard to make sure it does not block traffic from the network to the workstation.

And, have you tried to add the workstation by creating a computer account on the server, then using network setup disks to configure the WinXP machine and connect it to the domain.

Good luck
