[Samba] Can XP Home really Samba ?

    I guess XP Home can Samba if McAfee allows it. I was able to
access the Samba shares after I completly removed the McAfee firewall.
Exiting the firewall and stopping the services proved to be of no use
and caused me endless grief. I reluctantly gave it a shot since you
expect the firewall to stop poking its nose after it is disabled and
the services stopped and I was not expecting this weird behaviour.
Thanks to all the kind folks who have helped me out with suggestions.
