XP Network Shortcut error



I've posted this before, but never got an answer.

We have a small network with a Windows 2000 server and a
couple of Windows 2000 Pro machines, as well as several
XP Pro machines.

The problem is this. Whenever someone clicks on a
shortcut in My Network Place to access a folder on the
server, a message is displayed that states:

Problem with Shortcut

The drive or network that the shortcut 'target.lnk'
refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is
properly inserted or the network resource is available,
and then try again.

This only happens on the XP machines and when OK is
clicked, Explorer navigates to the correct directory.
It's not so much a serious problem as it is really
annoying. I've tried searching the knowledgebase,
technet, and msdn, but have had no luck finding anything
on it.

Does anyone know what the problem might be and how to fix
