I have a small network with a win2k server and 3 XP workstations. TCP/IP with static IP-adresses. When I open the file explorer it is wery slow, and I have very long responstime when I klick on a disk icon in the explorer. (It seems as it has hard to find the disks)

First thing to do would be to try and disable the background applications from loading by

Click Start - Run and type "MSCONFIG" and enter, click the Startup tab and click "Disable all".

Then run "SFC /SCANNOW" from Start-RUN.

Also, try to restart the Indexing Service in Windows XP systems by,

Click Start - Run and type "SERVICES.MSC" Here look for the indexing service and right click the same to Start/Restart.

Also, I found a couple of articles in MS KBase which could be a problem as well:;en-us;819017;en-us;Q315237

Hope this helps.

Are you talking about local harddrive or network drives?
Try this: run "regedit" and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
and delete it. This prevents xp from verifying if there are plannified tasks on the other workstations.
