The "map to guest" option is global, while I'm searching for a way to make 
guesting a single share, not the whole samba. Furthermore, can anybody tell 
me why my configuration for host equiv seems not to work? In the config file 
I've the following line:
host equiv = /etc/hosts.equiv
and in the hosts.equiv file I've got:
(being s88 the name of the window machine, also listed in the /etc/hosts 
file). When I try to connect thru the s88 machine, I'm requested to put a 
password, while the machine should access anonymously. Any idea?
