The @ sign means you are specifying the domain.   With Active Directory 
server you can have an internet-type domain name.      Which means, as 
you saw,  can simplify login experience for the user.

I would guess the solution is to have your Samba server emulate an AD 
server.    I don't think there is a way to change the client side 
behaviour but you could run gpedit.msc on an XP machine and see what 
settings exist.
