    For WinXP to access files on Linux, you will need to run the samba server. To access the WinXP shares from Linux use
    mount -t smbfs -o username=bob,password=pass,workgroup=workgroup //WIN_XP_PC/My_Share /mnt/my-mount-point
    Obviously substiture username, password, workgroup, PC name, share name, and mount point with your information.

    For help setting the samba server go to the following sites.
