Trouble logging on to domain in Windows server

Whenever I try to log into the domain my machine takes a lot of time and sometimes does not even complete the process. I am using Windows 2000 Server and the domain controllers are using Windows 2003 Server. Can you help?

Without additional information it's hard to point to a specific culprit. Some general troubleshooting steps you should take would be to check the Event Viewer on the client that is having trouble logging on, as well as on your domain controllers. You should also test network connectivity using PING and TRACERT, as well as using netdiag and nslookup on your domain controllers to verify that your DNS records are set up properly, particularly your SRV records that indicate the location of your domain controllers.
