No. There was an error, when the server failed to install my default 
printer (PDF writer), but no longer, as I unchecked the box for using 
local printers (no other local device used either).

At the moment I have only the one that comes with XP home. But I have 
accessed the same box bit over a year ago with W2K pro's TS client with 
no problems.

One thing that just might have something to do with it is, that my XP 
home is Spanish version. (BTW, good way to learn a new language...)

> d) Does this happen if you logon interactively at the console?

I have no physical access to the box, it can be reached only remotely.
