I am having trouble connecting with my linux machine from my XP machine. I am not sure what is the problem ...

My smb.conf seems to be fine. 

Here are few errors from several log files
service winbind status shows 
    winbindd dead but pid file exists

And under /var/log/samba/<client-name>.log shows - NT_STATUS_CANT_ACCESS_DOMAIN_INFO.

[root at wwwdev1tmp samba]# wbinfo -u
    Error looking up domain users    

More detailed log is as shown below ...
