ok i tried all of these ideas and it still says I don't have permission to access. I suspect the problem might be with the xp box, but I wouldn't even know where to start. I've been on IRC channels and other lists but no one seems to have much insight into my problem. I will just keep trying. Thanks

mmm try adding the username that you use to log in xp to the passwd and smbpasswd:

useradd xpuser
passwd xpuser
smbpasswd -a xpuser

change xpuser to the username you use to log in the xp box.

Another thing that I can think of besides the smb.conf file is do you have the proper permissions on that directory? Try a chmod 777 /to/the/direcotry
