[Samba] windows xp connect to share - cannot change user name from guest

The problem is that when we connect to the samba share through the network
neighborhood, WinXP gives a login box which has the user name "guest", and
it is greyed out so that you cannot change it. This is despite the fact
that I am logged into WinXP as "username".

Did you find a solution for the above problem? I am haveing the same trouble
with my home network. Many thanks for any help you can provide.
