1. Install the Samba and SMBFS packages. Use the command:

apt-get install samba smbfs 

2. Enter your domain/workgroup when prompted. The Windows XP default is MSHOME.

3. If prompted, select yes to creating a password database.

4. Although it is possible to setup Samba manually, it is highly recommended that you use Webmin (see Articles/DebianWebmin) for configuration. Webmin is much easier to use and will undoubtedly save you a lot of trouble.
