XP Pro requires domain admin password to access different domains

We are currently running NT4 servers with dual domains. We are gradually upgrading to Windows 2000 server. We are running Windows 2000 Professional and NT4 clients. We recently loaded a client with XP Pro. XP was able to gain permission from our resource domain but required the domain administrator password to gain access to any servers on the other domain. Any suggestions?
Use the NETDOM Resource Kit utility to ensure that your domain trusts are functioning properly. If the trusts have become corrupted, you may need to break and re-establish the trust. Other simpler solutions include testing overall network connectivity and name resolution -- figure out what's different between the domain that the workstation CAN access versus the domain that it CAN'T.
