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.
