I think you are right - there must be a stale reference - I know it works because I can map
the drive using the Tools>Map Network Drive approach. But I would like to know how to
setup the IP address on the network icon properly. Every time I try to do anything with the
disk icon it just seems to give me that error message. I'm not sure how to reset to the
correct IP address.

it. :( Try this, in lieu of an real explanation...
Try disabling your network connection, and then enabling it. I can't remember
if Windows 2000 has that ability. That usually fixes up many networking issues.
If that doesn't work, try rebooting and see if that clears it up.
And if that doesn't work, try changing the workgroup of both machines. I seem
to remember that this solved a similar issue I had. Eventually you can change
them back after Windows flushes whatever internal cache it's storage names in.
