Samba - XP Mapped Drive Problem

I have installed Samba successfully on my Redhat 9 machine. I have also successfully set up a share and can access it from my XP machine.
I have then mapped a drive from my XP machine to my linux share. The problem is when I reboot either PC I can no longer use that mapped drive, or access the linux share in any other way. In order to regain access to the share I must change the PC name of my XP box. I get an error stating that there is a 'duplicate computer name on the network, please change the PC name and try again.'
I've tried restarting the Samba Service, rebooting both PC's at the same time but still no dice. Any suggestions?

I not really sure what you're problem might be, try posting your smb.conf file maybe that might help.
