[Samba] guest ok = yes

I've got samba up and running, but I have the guest ok = yes option.

Now I have the book Using Samba by o'reilly, and if I'm correct this
setting should enable be to access the share without using a
username/password, however it doesn't work, then if I enter a valid
samba user when it prompts it works fine!


I've included my smb.conf file, any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm also new to linux, so could it be something to do with the
permissions for this folder?



            netbios name = THOR

            workgroup = LANGHOLME

            server string = Samba 2.2.7a 


            local master = yes

            os level = 99

            domain master = yes

            preferred master = yes


            encrypt passwords = yes

            security = user


            wins support = yes



            comment = Music Share

            path = /home/share/music

            browseable = yes

            read only = no

            guest ok = yes
