Just in-case anyone needs to know the solution so that is is 
documented.... Thanks to Jelmer and a close friend of mine for pointing 
me into the right direction.  For WinXP client machines the following 
needs to be done:

In your registry change the values for the following entries to 0:


[root at kuldipmanak root]# smbd -V
Version 2.2.7-security-rollup-fix

This has resolved the issues I was experiencing.
