Ok here's the answer:

David was right BUT  the account has to already exist in the user
accounts list.  (Dave probably already knew this and assumed I did too!)


smbpasswd -a root	Then add password and done.  XP will now connect to
the domain.

New problem!!!!  -  Windows cannot locate the profile (STINKIN M$) 
Ahhhh  another day down the toilet thanks to Bill!!!
