So I've got Ubuntu and Samba servers up and running.

I create a user in linux and on samba, both same username and password.  I
then follow the steps to create a share for that user.

>From a WinXp SP3 workstation I double click the Ubuntu server name, I see
the share, I double click and get a login prompt.
I enter the samba/linux username and password but it fails to log me in.
 What should I check or do?
