Browsing and passwords

I have seen some cases where I have been asked for a password in trying to
browse a system in network neighbour hood.
In looking at what is going on down at the SMB level, Win 95 is doing a
SessionSetup&X using my logon username and the password I logged on with.
So, clearly, if I do not have an account on the machine I am trying to
browse, I will have problems.
Is there any way to force all access to IPC$ to be via the guest account?
I have thought about map user etc, and wonder if this can be used to only
map to guest on password failures for IPC$ but not other shares?
