[Samba] Windows XP SP2 doesn't login to SAMBA domain

Something interesting I just encountered:

www:/etc/samba# smbclient -L localhost

added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
wins_srv_died(): Could not mark WINS server down.
Address not found in server list.
error connecting to (Connection refused)
Error connecting to (Connection refused)
Connection to localhost failed

Does this mean WINS on Samba isn't working?

We have a samba server for our computer lab.  Currently all the machines are
either windows 98 or windows 2000.  The 98 machines are assigned to the
'INTRANET' workgroup, while the windows 2000 machines are part of the
'INTRANET' domain.  We have no problems with this setup.

I'm now trying to deploy Windows XP (sp2) computers to this lab.....
