{Sorry for long post)

I'm attempting to set up a workgroup share on a RedHat 7.3 box (Samba
2.2.5-1) for a network of Windows XP Pro machines.  These machines also
log into a Novell Netware 4.11 server (Client32 4.83e) for email, so I
don't want to set up another domain controller (for more logins) on this
network (academic K-12, lot of teachers and elementary kids).

Netware 4.11 doesn't see IDE drives larger than 8GB; and I'm having to
load about 11GB of educational software on this Linux machine (80GB hard
drives).  I'd also prefer to have guest only access to the machine share.  

Am I going to have to set this up as a PDC and create machine accounts for
each XP machine?  

OK, what I need is to set up a workgroup share.  It is named cybered.

Here's the smb.conf:

# Global parameters
	netbios name = SAMBA SERVER
	server string = Samba Server
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	null passwords = Yes
