Try adding these lines to your smb.conf:
Map To Guest = Bad User
guest account = nobody
and guest ok = Yes
to the [filestore] section.
It appears you want to have
everyone given access to the
share, but the permissions
don't match that.
e.g. none of your Win2k users
are mapped to either User, Group,
or Others. Mapping Guest (Everyone/Noone)
to the nobody account might
give you the access.
