Assuming that a share with a read-only password and a writeable
password like Windows 9x, there's no way to build such shares without
write list (or read list) parameter.

As I wrote at https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1844 ,
the following smb.conf is the way to build such share.

  security = share 

  path = /tmp/guest
  write list = wshare01
  user = rshare01 wshare01
  valid users = rshare01 wshare01
