[Samba] Unable to connect to smb shares from second machine in

I have a pretty simply home LAN with a Linux box (Mandrake 9.1) and 2 XP
boxes. The workgroup is named UNIVERSE and the machines are earth
(Linux), voyager (XP) and starbase (XP). (smb.conf has security=user).
Voyager can browse over to \\earth\share no problem. Recently I
connected starbase to my LAN using a wireless router. When on starbase I
cannot browse to \\earth\share. When I do so I get prompted for a
username/password. No username/password works however!
Now I realize that in this situation with no domain control a user named
voyager\foo is not considered the same as starbase\foo. However how can
I get them both to be able to use \\earth\share?
BTW: Starbase used to be able to browse to \\earth\share before. Voyager
is a new XP box and replaced Starbase.
Any ideas would be helpful.
A little more info. Trying to follow the instructions at
When I do nmblookup -B voyager "*" I get:
Earth:nmblookup -B voyager "*"
querying * on 192.168.1.100
However when I do it for starbase:
Earth:nmblookup -B starbase "*"
querying * on 192.168.1.102
name_query failed to find name *
I have starbase in both /etc/hosts and /etc/samba/lmhosts pointing to
192.168.1.102. I've also tried completely turning off the XP SP2
firewall on Starbase - didn't help.
Just what part of "NO" didn't you understand?
