Cannot access SAMBA shares from one computer

Specs: Windows XP
I have 6 machines on a home network, with one of them being Ubuntu Server 9.10, 4 are WinXP, and the other is Win7. 3 of the XP machines and the Win7 box can see/access the server just fine. The one XP machine is my problem. It can access all boxes but the server. I can see the box in My Network Places, but cannot access it (spec network name is no longer available). I am able to ping the box by ip and hostname. If I try \\, I get the same not accessible message. Could someone please give me some suggestions? Thanks.

I forgot to mention, the workgroup seems to be randomly accessible. If I click on View Workgroup Computers, it comes up about 50% of the time, and the rest it errors out.

Nevermind, Hosts Allow in my SMB.conf was messed up. Problem corrected.
