This is working for me .... And I have w98, w2k, winxp .... The pdc is
win2k(192.168.1.2) for wins resolution.
#======================= Global Settings
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = APPLOG
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Samba Server
security = share
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=14596 SO_SNDBUF=14596
remote announce = 192.168.1.255
local master = no
os level = 5
name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
wins server = 192.168.1.2
nt status support = no
#============================ Share Definitions
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes
guest ok = yes
I also set the folders in the share to owner "nobody"
Once this is all working you can try all the security stuff ..... Step

Have you tried using guest ok = yes in the share and
guest account = ftp in global?
