I have a machine with linux redhat 7.0 with samba running on it. I have
tried to get file shares working with my win2k machines and I am having
The linux machine is showing up in the my network places and I want to turn
security off so that no user is prompted for a password and all file shares
are free and open. My question, is there a quick and dirty way to turn off
security for the samba shares.
I have tried to use swat to configure the security and I am having trouble
getting it to work for me .

If you have an easy way of making it happen please let me no or if you no
where I can find online a step by step instruction to setting up file
shares and
security with win2k machines please reply.

Thankyou for your help.
