Try doing it from the XP machine, instead of from RH.
Also, look into Filezilla to do ftp or sftp.

When using SMB to connect to another machine, you use the machine's windows name not the IP.

smb://workgroup/computer_name/shared_folder also check your security settings on the server. Your client might not be passing the correct info.

What version of redhat? I don't have a ton of experience in windows shares on Linux, but all of mine use CIFS to mount it on the Linux side.
