David,
Just a guess... probably a DNS issue - unable to resolve the hostname to the
proper IP address.  When connecting to the internet from home (or where ever),
DNS is probably provided by an ISP.  When at work, DNS is probably provided by
an internal server, or each server within your network is defined within a
hosts file.  For win2000, if you add an entry (for \\hp-cad) to your lmhosts
file (somewhere in C:\WINNT\system32 if I remember correctly) it should
resolve the issue.  If not, then just consider me a really bad guesser!
