Are you connecting with the same credentials (user name and password?)   
Do both shares require authentication?    I don't think Windows lets you 
connect to the same server with two different sets of credentials at 
one.      The the Linux machine setup as a PDC or just a workgroup 
server?  It is just a work group server do you have a samba account with 
the same username and password as on your XP machine?

Is this XP Pro or home?
