I managed doing this once in the 2.2 samba series
If I remember correcly you have to 'add' your xp box by loging in as
administrator and map administrator to root in the smbuser file.
Also add administrator/root to some admin unix group (forgot the details)
and have the windows box automatically be added as a machine-user (e..g $freddy
in your case) to samba.
The relevant part of my smb.conf looks like:
workgroup = DOLLAR
add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser -n -g machines -c Samba_Client -d /dev/null -s /bin/false %m$
server string = Samba
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
local master = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logons = yes
domain admin group = @adm @users
logon script = scripts\default.bat
logon drive = h:
wins support = yes
dns proxy = no
getwd cache = yes
time server = yes
The 'add user script' and the 'domain admin group' seem crucial!
Hope this helps a bit. It is been a while since I've set this up for a customer
so I might have miseed a few things but this should get you a step further...
