 Oh no, Vista Home Premium is fine for basic home networks.

 After searching, I believe issues with Vista and Vista printer
sharing are 'improved upon' in later releases, especially samba-3.0.25
(and we are at 3.0.23).

 Since I can see the shares on the Xp box just fine, but can't see
anything on the Vista box, I think I'll likely end up waiting for a newer
release of Samba and trying again then.
