I had to download the latest version of samba to get it working with my XP =

No errors and works as is now.
(Running 4.7 stable)

anyone had any luck in getting Samba and WinXP working. There doesn't seem
to be any upto date documentation at (that I can find).

It seems Win-XP want to authenticate with Samba using <hostname>\<username>
and I get the following
in the samba log:
    [2003/05/11 20:10:56, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:getsmbfilepwent(362)
      getsmbfilepwent: malformed password entry (uid not number)

Samba is 2.2.4a but am building 2.2.8a as I type.
