Well, that was almost a red-faced forehead slapper, except - - - - after I started the samba name daemon I managed to logon to one of the WinXP directories once!!!!

Then I logged off and attempted to log back on to the same directory and got a Can't resolve address error message.

I have, however, made a small amount of progress. Thanks to another suggestion I downloaded WinSCP and installed on the WinXP machine. So now I can move files form the win machine to the linux machine, and vice versa, on the XP machine.

The only energy barrier left is from linux to XP.

Please keep the suggestions coming.

Thanks in advance
