Windows XP works perfectly well with a Samba PDC (XP Pro that is, hopefully
you're not trying to use XP Home, that could be one source of your problems)
as does Windows 2000.

As mentioned before, XP needs a registry patch to enable it to login to a
Samba PDC, other than that small fix, it functions very much like Windows

Most of the annoying issues you'll come across with setting up Samba in this
way are covered in the many HowTo documents.  There are a number of things
that usually go "wrong", but are easily fixed.

Don't let the grammar police get you ;)
