Problems accessing Terminal Server with WinXP Pro

I had Terminal Services installed on a Windows 98 computer. I then upgraded the computer to Windows XP Pro. I have since uninstalled and reinstalled Terminal Services several times. I can connect to every other server except the one that was previously set up. Any idea why?

I'm a little confused by this. You've uninstalled and reinstalled Terminal Services on a Terminal Server, or have you uninstalled and reinstalled the RDP client on the desktop computer?

I'd make sure that you can see the Terminal Server in question on the network, independently of Terminal Services. If you can, then check permissions and make sure that you're allowed to log onto that Terminal Server.
