See #define GUEST_SESSSETUP in source/local.h
As this is a compile time option, you will proably have to set up a
separate samba server if you wish to maintain the login security on
What I did was to set up a guest samaba server that always validated as
the guest account and only provided certain administrative files ( like
patches, docs, etc... ) through it and kept another server to provide
file / printer services to [homes] and other software. Both of these
servers were running on the same machine.
