this directory shouldn't be writable, so I have it now like that:

   comment = Windows Packager
   path = /home/samba/wpkg
   read only = yes
   browseable = yes
   valid users = nobody, unattended, guest
   guest ok = Yes
   public = Yes

but as the server is a domain controller, it prompts for a 
username/password even if I just click on its icon (from win2k workstation).

This workstation already has a machine account.

What do you mean by "force user"?

Any more hints?
