Yes, but you will need to disable all signing. Windows XP has signing enabled 
by default and Samba-2.2.3 does not support that. Besides, Samba-2.2.3 is 
VERY old and there have been many security updates since it. The 2.x series 
is no longer supported. The currently supported version is 3.0.x, with the 
release of 3.0.11 due any time soon.
