    We are testing win2k3 on our demo system which is an
    inplace upgrade from NT4, So far every thing works NT
    Based systems logon fine as do 9x PC's but after a period
    of time (10-50 mins) the 9x clients seem to disconnect
    from the pdc domain controller, they can still browse
    the network except for the DC but non of the other PC's
    can access it as it asks for the network password. it
    like it is loosing its link to the domain the only way to
    fix it is to re-boot and log in again. it's proving to
    be a big problem as a lot of the 9x have printers
    connected and shared.

    We have tried the following

    Autodisconnect set to -1
    latest dsclient installed (2003 hot-fix version)
    we have even tried starting from scratch again full
    reinstall of nt4 and upgrade to 2003.

    Any suggestions would be welcomed with open arms
