By "can't find", do you mean the Samba server doesn't appear in
My Network Places (the browse list)? And if so, did you wait a good,
long time for the browse list to update?

Otherwise, I'd check the TCP/IP configuration on the XP systems
carefully, and test name service.

If the problem is a dialog that comes up during log on, then the
XP systems might need the RequiresSignOrSeal registry patch.
