Please check if you can ping thought from NT to win2k3 server.

Windows NT4 still needs NetBIOS name resolution to locate the domain. A
easy way to resolve the name resolution issue, please refer to the
following KB to create a LMHOSTS file for name resolution and check whether
the problem can be resolved:

Note: Please note that there must be a total of 20 characters within the
quotations. If you are not sure on this, please send me your LMHOSTS file
and I will double-check it for you.
