I experiemented a bit with the guest account parameter the other day, 
and I some questions:

a) It seems to me that if you turn this parameter on, the user will be 
used when someone browses the domain without beeing a domain member, is 
this a true observation?
(Don't answer this one, I checked the manual and it said yes).
b) It also seems that the guestuser must have a sambaSid that ends in 
501, else samba will not find the user, correct?

c) Also, if I want a guest user that can log on to my domain without a 
password, but who will not have any access to shares etc, should I then 
use this "guest" user or should I create a special user for this?

I think the questions are quite basic, but I just wanted to check that I 
am correct.
