Then make sure that smb.conf has the following:

In the [global] section:	security = share

In each other section that you define to share:	guest only = yes
							guest ok = yes

You should review the output of "man smb.conf" as there is a good description of how to setup 
shares with no authentication. Look into the security, guest only, guest ok, and guest account
