I don't have a domain.  And I can access the share, I just have to mount
it manually.  I can't use Konqueor, with a URL such as smb://xp/data,
the way I can with OS/2 or other Linux shares.  If I manually mount it,
I can browse through the mount point, as normal.  I seem to recall there
was an XP registry setting for that, but I don't remember what it was.
