Hi,
First thing u should do is ping ur domain server.If there is no reply by ping then there must be problem with either tcp/ip configuration or hardware level.If ping works then u should enable netbios over tcp/ip from tcp/ip properties.
Evenif this not work then u have use lmhost files.This file is present %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc floder.Enteries in LMHOST gile should be
ipaddress PDCname #PRE #DOM:Domainname
In ipaddress place ipaddress of server acting as domain controller.In PDCname put the name server acting as domanin controller.In Domainname put the name of domian in capitaL letters.
avi.

Assuming that you have already determined that there is no hardware problem (check all cables and hubs/switches as well as the NIC), and TCP/IP is working properly, you should check to be sure that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled in the TCP/IP properties - I don't think it is enabled by default on XP. If you are using DHCP, be sure that the workstation is set to use a DHCP server; if you're not using DHCP, be sure to double-check that the ip address and subnet mask of the workstation are correct. Also, unless they are being provided by a DHCP server, be sure that your WINS/DNS server addresses are properly configured on the workstation. Hope this helps!
