Are the workstations have the same workgroup name?

Also you can try to share something on the server as well. (after having
all the WS named the same)

had this to say:

RF> My Dad is trying to set up a very small network.  There is one server, a
RF> Windows 2003 server, which is not set up as a domain controller (although my
RF> Dad did try that at first.  However, I advised him to not set it up as a
RF> domain, since all of the workstations are Windows XP Home Edition PCs,
RF> which, as I understand it cannot work on an Active Directory domain.)
RF> Now, he cannot get the workstation to see the workgroup specified on the
RF> server.  When he tries to add a user he gets the error message, "Unable to
RF> locate the domain controller.  Active Directory maybe unavailable or you may
RF> have insufficient permissions.  Check these conditions or contact the person
RF> responsible for your network." 
RF> So his question is, how does he add a user on a regular server which should
RF> NOT be a domain controller?
