This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but do you have port 80 firewalled 
off on your Samba server?  It's my understanding that by default, XP 
will try to access network drives via WebDAV before trying SMB, and a 
firewall that drops attempted connections to port 80 or that doesn't 
respond with a TCP reset can cause noticeable slowdowns in connections 
from XP.
