well, first thing to know... is your Xp home or professional ?
if is home, bad news, great troubles...
if professional, try The Windows XP service pack 1, here at my network it 
has worked very well...
but if is home... all logon scripts and profiles will be stored locally at 
the client side, no way to do different.
another thing to do is to create a machine account on the samba side, just 
like an NT4 machine.
