I think I'm running samba 3 because I installed it with Fedora 3 setup.
Smbstatus gives me the following:
Sessionid.tdb not initialized
/var/cach/samba/connection.tdb not initialized
Failed to open byte range locking database
ERROR: Failed to initialize locking database
ps -wuax | grep -E "smb|nmb" gives me the following:
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? see.....
My 'smb.conf' goes like this:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = HOBBIT
security = share
comment = Data
path = /export
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes

What version of samba are you running?
How did you install it? configure or rpm?
What errors are you getting when you try to map a drive?
You'll have to supply some more information
first, run those two commands from the shell, on your Fedora box. and tell
what they output. Do you know that samba is started? the command `ps -wuax
grep -E "smb|nmb"` should return two differnt processes - smbd and nmbd.
the command `smbstatus` will give you info about samba shares.
are you seeing anything in your log files on Fedora from the xp box, which
be log.machinename or log.ip.address and are most likely stored in /var/log
/var/log/samba. If so what do they say?
