    ok first off I am VERY new to sbs. But here is my
    problem (and sorry in advanced if it is a repeat):
    I installed 2003 sbs standard (eval because I can't
    afford it yet hehe). Installed XP with RIS which I
    thought was cool.
    on my client machine (xp pro) when I click on start and
    goto "Documents" or "My Documents" it either works really
    good, or it times out. I figure it is something with the
    dns but I do not know what it is.
    Something that is goofy is that I store my music on the
    SBS Server and when winamp is playing through normally it
    will switch songs without any problems. But sometimes
    (not all the time) when I change songs on purpose it will
    take about 20-60 seconds before the song starts to play
    (not to be confused with changing songs flawlessly on
    it's own).

    I really don't want to change the links for my documents
    off of the server to a local drive. It is just really
    annoying having to wait up to 5 minutes for
    the "Document" tab on the start menu to showup when I
    accidently go over it to slow.

    Any help on the magic numbers would be helpfull and
    thanks in advance.

    some spare info that might help
    linksys router playing gateway only (192.168.1.1)
    SBS 2003 standard eval (stop laughing ;) )
    XP Pro (on client)
    2000 pro for the little laptop that keeps on ticking

    DNS: 205.152.132.235
    205.152.144.235
    192.168.1.2 (someone told me to throw that in the
    bottom)

    forward lookups:
    _mscds.satori.local (didn't notice that before)
    satori.local

    and my "SQL Server Manager" cannot "Connect to //" but I
    think that is some other can of worms.

    Again thanks :)
