Yes, I'm already on 3.0.  My smb.conf is the same file I was using when 
I started on 2.x.  It's more complex than yours:

    workgroup = RESEARCH
    netbios name = DMC2
    server string = Neuroregeneration Samba Server %v
    printcap name = cups
    load printers = yes
    printing = cups
    printer admin = @adm
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    log level = 10
    map to guest = bad user
    security = user
    encrypt passwords = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    local master = no
    os level = 33
    domain master = no
    preferred master = no
    dns proxy = no

[NRL Folders]
   comment = NRL Data Folders
   browseable = yes
   writeable = yes
   path = /home/nrldata
   create mask = 7777
   directory mask = 7770
   fstype = Samba
   hide dot files = no

    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    guest ok = yes
    writable = no
    printable = yes
    create mode = 0700
    print command = lpr-cups -P %p -o raw %s -r
    path = /var/lib/samba/printers
    browseable = yes
    read only = yes
    write list = @adm root
    guest ok = yes

    path = /var/tmp
    guest ok = No
    printable = Yes
    comment = PDF Generator (only valid users)
    print command = /usr/share/samba/scripts/print-pdf %s ~%u //%L/%u %m 
%I "%J" &
