If your workgroup=WORKGROUP (the windows default) that line can be omitted, 
but you need at least one parameter in the [global] stanza.

For the rest, please refer to chapter 1 of the book "Samba-3 by Example, 2nd 
Edition" downloadable from http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf 

Chapter 1 provides 3 simple network configurations that work. The above 
configuration is not very useful, but it answers your question precisely.
