[Samba] Security = user question

For users that are not known to samba allow them to be a guest using
this line in smb.conf:

map to guest = Bad User

Then assign the guest account a unix account

guest account = nobody

Make sure the user (in this case 'nobody') is in you /etc/passwd

In the section for the share add:

guest ok = yes

That should work

Subject: [Samba] Security = user question

I am running a Sun Solaris system with Samba 3.0.0.

The security level is user

but I want 1 share as guest share so that everybody can read it without 
supplying a username or password.

How can I do this ?

Thanks for the help.
