The best way is to add a unix user and group named pcguest and then set 
guest account = pcguest in the global options and read list = pcguest in 
your share, this will make any pc on your lan able to read from the share, 
if you want write access, then just put writ list = pcguest and  read only 
= No guest ok = Yes

Male sure all your computers are in the same workgroup as the samba server 
and that you don't have any ip restictions in your smb.conf blocking your 
NT boxes. Also if your running any kind of firewalls on your NT's, this 
might couse the 'no service' problem.
