You should read the book.
This works for me, but I have a trusted internal network:

        netbios name = JHAMMER6
        server string = Samba %v Your Server
        security = SHARE <-----------------Note
        log level = 1
        max log size = 50
        guest account = ftp   <--------You will need this
        read only = No      <--- Not sure what this does but use it
        guest ok = Yes    <-----------The important item for security
        hosts allow = 192.168. 127.  <---You can restrict hosts here 
        veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/ <--------worm files
        veto files = /*.{*}/     <---Worm files
        comment = Root directory
        path = /
        create mask = 0766
