is it xp home or pro? you can't add home to a domain

if you've got pro, then check your logs and tell us what you see.

Also make sure you have created samba users with smbadduser as well. When joining a domain you should also do it as root.

For adding samba users see:

For swat - make sure that you do not have any firewall rules blocking port 901- post the output of:
iptables -nL
