You need to run smbpasswd to add your user to the Samba user
database, and set the password. Windows and Linux use different
password algorithms for encrypting passwords. So Samba can not
use the Linux password unless you set XP to use plain text
passwords when talking to the Samba server.

This is all covered in the Samba documentation.
