I just installed Redhat 7.2 with samba-2.2.1a on a linux machine. I
connected the linux machine to
a wireless router, which is connected to a hub. I run WinXP Pro PC which
is connected to the same
hub. There is no problem for me to connect to the samba server from
machines attached to the wireless
router, ( one Mac OS X & one Win98), but I can't connect to the samba
server from the WinXP Pro
machine. I put the IP address of the linux machine as the WINS in WinXP
and enable NETBIOS over
TCP/IP. Everytime when I try to use "net view \\linuxmachine" or "net
view \\IP of the linuxmachine", I got
the error message 
  "System error 53 has occured"
 and " The network path was not found" .
Can anyone help me to look into this? Thanks a lot.
PS: here is my smb.conf

   workgroup = JIAFEIMAO
   netbios name = linuxmachine
   server string = Samba Server
   wins support = yes
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   valid users = %S
   create mode = 0664
