[Samba] Win98SE Password Confused

To follow is my Samba.conf file.  My desire is to allow my one Windows 
98SE machine to write and/or store files to "public2" folder on my Samba 
server.  My Win98SE machine "sees" the server through "neighborhood 
network" and shows the "public2" folder.  When you double click the 
folder, Samba requests a password for IPC$.  All passwords fail.  What 
do I have set incorrectly?

I would like to get the files to read and write, back and forth before I 
tackle things like printers and other.  Please help.
