After messing arround with the configutation, I found a work arround.  
In the global section, use user level access, encrypt passwords, and set 
'map to guest = Bad User'.  With this configuration you can allow guests 
to certain folders, while restricting others. This configuration was the 
only way I was able to achieve 'share level access' without WinXP 
restricting the username.
