Server Questions

I would advise fleeing (screaming) from domain control.  Using a samba
server for centralized file storage should be enough - you won't need
peer-to-peer access in XP any longer.  Setting the samba machine to be
the authority on the network should be sufficient.

Every winboxen in the same workgroup, the samba machine in the same
workgroup, and the samba machine as the authority has worked well for
me in small, mixed networks with win98, win2k, XP and OSX machines all
playing well together.
