    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 (
    SBS 2003 standard eval (stop laughing ;) )
    XP Pro (on client)
    2000 pro for the little laptop that keeps on ticking

    DNS: (someone told me to throw that in the

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

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

    Again thanks :)
