Thank you for the post; however, all was done.
The user name was the same, and the password was the same on.....
1) the xp machine
2) the smbpasswd
3) the /etc/passwd file
Again, 'more over', with things like this, this should be expected to show up 'anyway'
comment = /tmp
path = /tmp
guest ok = yes
Also I turned off the firewall on the xp box.
Thanks again in advance, any ideas are cool.
