	The write list will do what you want, but the user
	must be logged in first, as themselves or as guest.

	You can make a share readable to guest by playing with
	"guest ok", but that will mess up write list!  Better
	is tio use "map to guest" for peopel who don't have unix

	ps: this should have been directed to samba at,
