Smaba pains on a windows 2k domain

To doay I was able to start the process of configure ina samba server on a windows domain at CLE domain = esa,corp, however whe i tired to test a connection via a windows XP Professional client I couldn't geti positive connection even afte ading my username psmith to the samba passwoord file.

her is the code step by step,

 yum -y install synaptic
#which will give you aptutils with the synaptic package management front in fedora

apt-get install -y samba
 smbpasswd -a psmith 

 apt-get install -y openssh-server

and the followinf top the wins server = line in the /etc/samba/s=mb.conf file
[CODE] wins server =]

a swell as the following networks to the hosts allow line in /etc/samba/smb.conf and the esa.corp network to thw workgroup = line.
 hosts allow =
      worgroup = esa.corp
Should i have just added the whole windows domain to the hosts
all line? dDo i need to designate the relm as esa.corp in addition to the work group in order to be able to qaccess this server via a windows XPProfessional cliemt on the above mentioned line,
