I am debbuging my Kubuntu Linux to Windows XP Professional Service Pack 
1 and 2 connection using Andrew Tridgell's excellent diagnosis.txt.

The test fails on test 5 which should return a list of available shares 
from the server.

 From the XP command prompt:
net view \\kinda
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

I can't see why this error should be happening.
Bother users have the same user name.
The linux password is encrypted but I don't know about the WXP password.
