Try setting guest account = ftp and guest ok = yes (The former in global and the latter
in your share.)
If this works, consider reading the documentation next time.
It may be a browsing problem. Can you see your computer in network
neighborhood? Does the share appear?
You might try a more simple share:
[ public ]
     guest ok = yes
     path = /
     read only = no
