then access your samba server from window xp.
this config is an example, of many configuration types.
And is written for Fedora, or RHES, as it seems.
However, the easiest way is to also install a gui package, to visually configure the samba system. (SWAT is one, but requires a webserver)
Check your repository of your distribution, by searching for samba..
Samba is not that hard to setup, and has allmonst all possibilities of win2000 and part 2003 server. Including policies, startup scripts deployed on the client, domain server, memberserver etc etc..
It mainly up to you, what type of samba config you want.
