Fedora2 Samba and WindowsXP

OK, I re installed the Fedora, Ran the updates but didNOT update to the new kernel 2.6.6-1.427
I installed the webmin and it works !!
and when I was installing fedora i did not check the box for windows file sharing because it contained Samba

Now, I have a fresh version of fedora on my computer. webmin works !
BuT !!! Check this out.
Samba is on anyway !!!!! maybe it came in with the update. ?.?.?
i click the red hat icon and go to system settings then to server settings and samba is there... BUT what is different this time is that it works. If i click on it. it asks me for root password.
I type it in and i can add users and folders and stuff.

I made a share, a folder that I created called /nfs
now, when i try to connect to it, it brings up a login window !!!
I am getting closer !!! HEHEHE
Problem is, the username is arleady filled out with Atomicmailserve\guest and windows wont let me change it.
I can type in a password though.
