user not authorized to log into samba server from win XP station

my linux server, named raglinsmb shows up in my MSHOME folder on windows XP, but when I go to click on it, it pops up a box saying "the account is not authorized to log in from this station, check with network administrator to see if you have permissions to access this resourse"

in my samba setup I created accounts galore, with different windows user names, profile names, the name of my windows computer, but I can not get access to it from any of my windows machines. How do I access it?

Thank you in advance for your help.
