i just build lineighborhood from source and it all worked out
this is how how do it
download the source, extarct tar ball then ./configure && make && make install
I'm using kde but after i install it i don't see it anywhere.
How can i use this linneighborhood with kde?
did you enable sharing of any folders on it. i think you need to enable some shared folder on those xp machines. assuming you are checking windows machines in Linneighbourhood and not asking actual smaba configuration to access windows machines
ok then do following
1) make one domain and place your winxp machines under that domain
2) start Linneighbourhood and right click on you host name
3) select as rescan groups as user
4) create one windows username and give all details in that dialog window
5) check whether you got entry on that domain
so whats exactly the problem? you are able to see your roommate's xp and not able to see other windows XP machine from you Linux machine? is this machine comes directly when you starts Linneighbourhood or you scan it and then got it?
you can check settings on windows XP(roommates) if anything varies in terms of domain settings or best to check Linneighbouthood's add buttons / prefs button and follow that dialog
