    here is basic setup

    I use basic functions, centos 5.2, readhat 6~9, etc, xp-sp2/3 ok,

    #vi /etc/samba/smb.conf, do following:
    workgroup = <YOUR CO ASKED>
    ; encrypt passwords = yes
    server string = <ANY STRING U SEE FROM XP>
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

    security = user
    load printers = yes
    comment = Home Directories
    valid users = <LINUX USERNAME> root
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    comment = Temporary file spacequit
    path = /tmp
    read only = no
    public = yes

    Then create password file and test samba: sudo:
    cat /etc/passwd | > /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    #service smb restart
    smbpasswd -a <LINUX USERNAME>
    #?smbclient //$HOSTNAME/<LINUX USERNAME> //may not need

    then log in from XP use your linux user a/c

    Problem is solved now. The issue was "SELinux", I have it now set to "Permissive" (it was set to "Enforcing" originally).

    Thanks to all who replied.
