Samba DFS link refers to a location that is unavailable.

If you ‚promoted‘ a Samba share to DFS root, a try to access the DFS link right after the change, you may receive rather long and useless error message from explorer, that starts with <location> refers to a location that is unavailable. This is all just a result of your impatience. Log off, log on and try again!

I rebooted my windows xp box a dozen times, still the same.

Well that's what helped me, but it was Win2k3 domain controller that had the issue. Are you sure the DFS target is ok and available? Can you access it directly?
