The fix for the issue described in article 812513 is included in Sp1. My
guess as to the cause of your problem is that the XP machines are having a
hard time resolving the name of the server. Once it does that the first
time, it caches the mapping so it doesn't take as long for subsequent
accesses. An XP client should be configured with ONLY the DNS server for
your domain, and not any other DNS servers. Your domain DNS server should
be configured with a DNS forwarder so that client machines can resolve
internet names as well as intranet names. For instructions on how to
configure a DNS forwarder, see the "How to Configure Forwarders" heading in
the following article:
As a side note: If you are ever in doubt as to whether a given update is
already on your computer, look at the section of the article that describes
the files that changed. If all of the files on your computer are the same
date, or newer, than the files in the article, then you should already have
that fix installed.
