I have a home network with 2 XP machines and 1 Linux machine. I've set up SAMBA so that I can access the Linux machine from XP, but am having difficulty in viewing the XP machines from Linux. I've tried Neighbourhood Network under Linux but have not been successfull.

Can anybody give me /or point me in the direction of  a step-by-step guide as to how I can set up my Linux machine to view other 'Windows'" machines on my local network.?

Do you need to view graphically or will mounting a a resource be good enough?

mount -t smbfs -o username=username,password=password //server/share /mnt/point
or try smbtree

Assuming you're using redhat type redhat-config-printer-gui...
Create a samba printer with the gui and it should be there next time you boot.  I assume other distributions have a similar printer config utility.
