Question simple samba n00b question

Hey geekers and geekeresses of the land of Linux,

(no insult intended.. I say 'embrace the geek in you')

Meez-a n00b.

I have Mandrake 9.0 and need Samba for XP connection?
Is that good/bad/ugly?
Which version of Samba?
Pref rpm, maximum version of mandrake samba is 8.2.. Does that mean Mandrake 9.0 can't run it?
Or can it run it being an older version?

Also are there any How-to documents that wont give me a headache? (not really much hope there is)

With Sincerest love kisses, hugs etc.

gn000we (=bloke, and straight )

oo-tee-nee.. I've gotta get out more!

I would suggest getting SWAT as well. It gives a nice gui you can access through your browser to configure samba. You can get everything you need at
