Trouble connecting to OSX server from XP domain members

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Can someone help me out with a problem connecting to our OS X server from Windows XP? Basically, I only have trouble connecting from XP machines that are members of the domain.
Here are some details:
OS X Server 10.3.9, bound to domain through Active Directory.
Windows Services role = Domain Member.
Computer name (under Windows Services) = macserver
Connects fine from Macs via Network>Domain>macserver
macserver IP address: 192.168.1.5
Sharing 1 folder to all members of the domain.
I can connect fine from OS X computers and XP computers that are NOT members of the domain
I can connect from XP domain members via the IP address \\192.168.1.5
I cannot connect from XP domain members via Network Neighborhood>Domain>macserver, or by entering the computer name. Error message recieved: "The account is not authorized to log on from this location."
I can ping macserver from any xp machine and it resolves the IP address.
I can browse the webserver on OSX Server via http://macserver.
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Eric

I can't remember how I resolved this. I think I had a number of problems, for instance, spaces in fileshare names. I might also have set up the domain incorrectly. Who knows.
