Can you help me get the W2K machine to join the workgroup?

Question

I have 3 machines, 2 XP and 1 W2K Pro. Before rebuilding the W2K machine following a virus attach all networked just fine on my wireless LAN. Now I can't get the W2K machine to join the workgroup. Unfortunately the printer is attached to the W2K machine. I've tried to check local policies and TCP/IP settings but I can't see a problem. I've noticed that Kerberos is in use on some of the policies, but don't know if that's a problem. Can you help me get the W2K machine to join the workgroup?
