I have no problems with xp pro and samba here at work :(. Once I disabled the encrypt logon stuff I am golden. The few laptops we do have with XP home, I make log in like a normal NT/XP machine with cntrl-alt-delete so the issue with the username doesn't happen.

I enabled NetBios over TCP/IP in WIndows XP and played with rights on winblows and finally go mine to work. I was able to see the shares doing smbclient but never could log on. I think xp might be by default  cannot log onto a non Windows domain. Ive never had these issues with 2000 plus i also noticed in xp that my drives that I have mapped from xp never reconnect I always have to renter username password 2000 never did that.
