in smb.conf

security = user
map to guest = bad user
guest account = ftp  (or another user)

path = /path/dir
guest ok = yes
writable = yes

make /path/dir writable by the ftp (or another user) user.

User which don't provide a good userid will be mapped to the guest user
and will be able to access the share.
