With samba you can very easily accidently cut off access to XP machines. See if there are any options in use the could prevent it, and networking with XP does not work with the default samba config if you use sambas sample smb.conf. If you use an easy distros it should.
Im using OpenBSD
was simple enough for my linux newbie to get installed with the laptop sitting next to it and reading damn near every website imaginable on getting apache, samba, openbsd, perl, php and mySql installed correctly.. I think i got everything done...
So I need to look in webmin for stuff on the samba.conf? ok
but what am I looking for XP stuff????
I have pretty much the default configured, but im not sure as to what i should be looking at to see if thats the problem
