Ok - win95 systems were on Samba 2.2.x
Now, added XP pro systems...

added user account on XP desktop
AND on samba/linux server and
did a "smbpasswd -a"

c:\>net use \\ipaddr\share /user:"user"

works ..

but on the XP system (logged in as that
user) I CAN't see the network, even
doing an add network places..
(I get no error.. )

question - 
DO I need to put info about the XP machine
into the samba server?
