Unhappy Samba and Windows XP help please

Heres my problem. I setup samba, no problem, I think. I can get to my linux box from xp with no problem. However, When I try to get to xp from my linux box it fails. Here are my error messages.

This occurs when I try to mount the filesystem from commanline
6748: session request to TK00 failed (Not listening on called name)
6748: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Not listening on called name)
SMB connection failed

And this occurs when I try to use Konqueror
Unknown error
can't parse response message

Any help would be appreciated, I searched through the various forums wiht no luck.

So, this isnt a real mystery. You have the wrong computer name in for your WindowsXP box, in your linux samba config. You'll have to find the correct name and put it in so it calls for the right box.
