I have two computers one is a mandriva 2006 and the other one is running windows xp. When I use krdc to do a remote desktop connection from the windos xp computer icon indide of devices in the mandriva 2006 I get the message "cannot connect to remote server". I would appreciate help with this.

Sounds like a firewall or Xwindows forwarding permissions problem but this is just conjecture because I can barely understand your post and you have given hardly any details.

I'm sorry, I have two computers on a home network conected by a router and I am using dhcp for my configuration of tcp/ip. The router is a usrobotics 8004,connected to my dsl. I am running samba on the linux box, I would appreciate any more insight

You are still not providing much info...

Are you sure samba is up and running?
Have you set up your shares?
Have you put your windows box in "hosts allow = " in smb.conf?
Have you set up authentication? Which type?
Have you run 'testparm' to ensure your config is valid?
Have you checked the logs for hints?
Is your firewall (if you have one) allowing access?

I do suggest you read the configuration docs and make sure your samba server is configured correctly for how you intend to use it:

This is the output of testparm
