RH8.0 -> WinXP Home Ed?

Using Samba 2.2.5 & the "smb" plugin thingy for Konqueror.

From the Konqueror browser, I can see the windows machine, see the shared folders, but cannot see the shared files within them.

From the Windows machine, I can see and manipulate all of the shared items on the Linux machine. That appears to be working fine.

Cannot copy from the linux machine to the Windows machine. Returns error that writing to smb is not supported.

Is there any gui frontend supported via smbclient for file sharing from linux to windows xp?

Do you have the correct permissions set on the XP machine?

The XP machine's folder's sharing and security is set to share this folder on the network and to allow network users to change my files. A network name of SharedDocs has been assigned.

For authentication on the local network, network access is enabled using IEEE 802.1X, using smart card or other certificate. Authenticate as computer when computer information is available, and authenticate as guest when user or computer information is unavailable.

I don't have a guest account set up on the XP machine, but didn't think I needed one.
