    xp machine was replaced with new xp machine, old xp machine had no problems connecing and printing from the server. New Xp pro sp3 boots fine everything works, you can see the computer in network places, connects to server 2003 sp2 and prints remotely fine, After a period, 5-10 minutes i am guessing, of time the new xp machine disappears from off the network places list can not connect to shared files unless through a previously connected mapped drive, when trying to print out of the server says no printers are installed try to reinstall printers need to restart print spooler, to get server printers to show up. after resetting print spooler on Server still will not print. What is wrong with the xp machine. If I restart computer brouser services the new xp machine will show up in network places. I have searched several posts can not find an answer any help is appreciated, thank you.
