?? Those two statements seem to conflict with one another. Or are you talking about connecting manually? Like \\server\share ?
Are you running the RTM versions of those operating systems or the RC versions?
Your problem is such a random occurring one that I'm not sure what you can do to solve it. Possibly some network services are getting stopped.
Does it have anything to do with your bridged connections? You might try configuring the 2008 server into a DNS server or even Active Directory services. It might help to keep it in the network list. I have a similar setup and I haven't run into this problem yet.
