[Samba] browseable shares need password for browsing

I have a standalone samba server with security = user, and a collection of 
XP and Win2K clients. In this mode, listing the available shares on the 
server requires a password, even though I have set browseable = yes for 
each share. This behavior is consistent with the Samba documentation. But 
I wonder if there is a way to make the shares browseable without a 
password? I am running Samba version 3.0.7-2.FC2 on Fedora Core 2.
