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.
