Vmware and samba in FC6

Hello I am a new user of the FC6 OS,I need to install a virtual machine using Vmware.The virtual machines must run the Windows XP OS and then both must be connected using Samba,But every time I try to acces the Linux machine windows keeps telling me its not in the network and the name "localhost" is a duplicate.


I've gone over the configuration of the smb.conf and I find no mistake I have even used the test smb.con that offers


workgroup = METRAN
encrypt passwords = yes
wins support = yes
log level = 1
max log size = 1000
read only = no
browsable = no
map archive = yes
path = /var/tmp
printable = yes
min print space = 2000
browsable = yes
read only = yes
path = /usr/local/samba/tmp


If you need aditional info please Ask me and I will gladly give it to you,there is only one network card and both the virtual machine and linux machine can ping to one another without trouble


by the way the version of vmware is 5
