Lets suppose you have
/home/public to be accessed by anyone on your network:

You _must_ have /home/public set to nobody.nogroup (recursively huh :)

# ll /home/public/ -d
drwxrwxrwx    8 nobody   nogroup      4096 Dec 16 20:26 /home/public/

and in smb.conf:

guest ok=yes
force user=nobody
comment=Common share

This should work fine, works for me in 2.2.3a (Debian stable)
