What this probably means is that you are getting authenticated as the
'guest' user
when you attach to your samba server, which is nobody.  And it is showing a
share for that user...
Try conecting to samba, then using smbstatus to see what unix user you are
attached as from that machine...

Hi all,

I dunno what I've done wrong, but since I upgraded my Samba 2.2.1a to 
2.2.2 (Mandrake 8.0) I can see share called "nobody" in the list of 
shares on the server. Even I can't open it ( it asks for the password - 
I used guest, my login, root no success )  I can't seem to understand 
it. I have no share with this name in the smb.conf so I don't know what 
does it mean.
It has the same comment as my "home directories".

Anyone seen this?
