What does your /etc/samba/smb.conf look like?

Mine works perfectly when I access it from an XP machine over the lan. Here's my config that does this.

Code:
[global]

netbios name = development
workgroup = WORKGROUP
security = share
log file = /var/log/samba.log
log level =  1
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=16384 SO_SNDBUF=16384
wins support = yes
domain logons = no
logon drive = f:
logon home = \\stefan\%U
os level = 99
preferred master = yes
local master = yes
hosts allow = 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.3 10.0.0.4 10.0.0.5 10.0.0.6 10.0.0.7 10.0.0.8 10.0.0.9 10.0.0.10 10.0.0.11 10.0.0.11
encrypt passwords = yes
browseable = yes
lanman auth = yes
lm announce = yes

[shared]
path = /mnt/win/shared
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
create mode = 0666
directory mode = 0777
browseable = yes
public = yes
I can access the /mnt/win/shared on my Linux box from any of my Windows systems without it prompting for password / usernames...

Did you create a Samba account on the Linux box? As root issue the command "smbpasswd -a username" where username is the XP user. If you make the password the same on the Samba server as on the XP machine you should be able to connect without the challenge.

Have you checked the permissions on the folders and files from the Linux side? If the user(s) cannot access them from Linux they cannot access them with Samba. You also might check the firewall settings on the Windows PCs. I had a Zone Alarm upgrade break my first Samba setup some years ago. I blamed the problems on Samba and it took a looooooong time for me to figure out that the Windows firewall was the source of the problem.
