small business server and windows vista networking problem

By ozziesbodyshop ·
I have a server running samll business server 2000. I am trying to connect a new computer to the network that is running vista business. When i plug the vista computer in it finds a network and connects to the internet through that network but i cant see any other computers on the network so i can not use any network drives. Any help would be great.

Has the Vista PC actually been added to the Domain.
<br>
Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Network and Sharing Center.
<br>
Check that network discovery is enabled along with anything else that you may need.
<br>
You can also lower the authentication level Vista uses by following the directions below.
<br>
Click Start, Run and type secpol.msc and press Enter, run it as administrator if required.
<br>
Under Local Policies\Security Options
<br>
Change the value of <b>Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level</b> from <b>NTVLM2 responses only</b> to <b>LM and NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated.</b>
