Apparently there are some problems with Samba PDC and XP clients.
I do not believe you *need* NIS(+), but there are hacks around it.

I suppose it depends if you are using an XP PDC and merely sharing
from Samba, or whether you have a Samba PDC.

If you are using an XP PDC, then you may like to consider
LDAP, as this can tie in a bit better with XP ActiveDirectory.
