Question can't access shared folder of other PC' on Mandrake 9.2 to WinXP

Hi everybody,

First of all, forgive my english.
I am a happy newbie who works exclusively with linux at work, for 3 weeks now.

There is my problem:
I don't have access to the other computers (winXP) shared folders and printers.
Using LinNeighboorhood, I can see the PC's, but I don't have access to them. If I boot my machine with Win XP, I don't have the problem. I have acces to Internet through the lan, and it works perfectly.

Is it a protocol problem?
Don't know.

Thanks in advance for your help,
