i've some XP pro and one XP home workstation. samba runs in sharemode:

        workgroup = SCHNELL
        server string = SERVER
        security = SHARE
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        time server = Yes
        dns proxy = No
        ldap ssl = no
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        invalid users = root

the xp pro clients and the server are on the subnet and the
xp home is on connected by a router.

the xp pro workstations work with out any problem. but the xp home asks for
a username and password. why ?

any suggestions ?
