Hi Chantal,

I don't know what is the real problem you face, but here in my office, we
don't have such problems  with users using Win XP HE. All I do is join their
machine into the PDC (with smbldap-useradd -w; since I use ldap as the
backend) then add their username and smbpassword into the PDC. The username
and smbpassword should be the same as their local one. Other way, samba will
ask them to login every time they start to browse the samba share. Good

PS. I use samba-3.0.20b-3.3 on OpenSuSE.
