Samba is used for file and printer sharing. Since you do not have active directory, it is easy to setup workgroup kind of stuff. FreeBSD can act as Fileserver, Proxy, Firewall and Internet sharing server. The best way to learn is official FreeBSD handbook,

First off do you have Windows XP Home or Professional? If you have Home you can't really do this since you can't join a domain.

In XP Pro you have to be in the same domain/workgroup as set in smb.conf
Here's how you join one: right click my computer -> Computer Name -> Network ID -> next -> part of a business network -> without domain -> WORKGROUP is fine -> Finish -> Restart
Now you can right click on My Computer -> Map Network Drive -> type your \\server-ip\share and you're done. Google is your friend if you get stuck on one of these steps.

Also take a look at this link which came up with a google search for samba and win xp: https://www.ccs.uky.edu/docs/samba.htm

No idea about OpenLDAP sorry
