Samba file sharing

Running Fedora Core 4, 2 machines if 5 on the network running ONLY FC4, other 3 running XP still.

I went in and setup samba to share a directory ( /kylere/home/cache ) but regardless how I set access right ( everyone or specific) I can't access it from the XP machines.

So okay I thought, maybe it is XP.

Booted from a Linspire Live CD, and went through exactly the same steps, and it works fine!

"I was like, W T F"

And still am, any clues? or is there is conf file I can save after I boot into Linspire, that I can copy over to FC4 ETC? Or failing that is there anything I can post here that would make it easier for someone to provide a solution?

Could it possibly be a firewall issue on FC4?

I actually installed it with it completely disabled, so it should not be as far as I know.
