Two separate problems.
Because of the security settings in Vista, for the client to logon to the
server, it is necessary:
(a) for the client and server (DC) to be in the same domain, and
(b) for the the user to be logged on at the client using a credential that's
understood by the server.
WFS relies on the logged on user token and not extra credentials. So, though
you may manage to create a connection to a network share / printer, that is
not the way WFS RPC works. In older OS (XP and so), the RPC for printer
share used to remember credentials but Vista doesn't have that any more as
that poses security concerns.
The address book message means that you have the Outlook Address Book set as
the default for that partition without having set up the Outlook Address
