File Takes an Unexpectedly Long Time to Open Through SMB Protocol - Windows Networking

I am expericing trouble with new machines running XP proffesional when they open a file from the server the first time it takes a long time doing so, after they work fine. I found in the MS Knowledge Base an article that metion this (Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 812513) in this article it mentions that there is a fix for this but it dosent tells me where the file is located. Anybody knows what fix this is?...

    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.
