I tried to search for the aneswer but this is simply to much to browse.
And I am quite newbie.

Problem: I created a public share, onto which I can log no problem,
however I'd like to have homedirs available.

I added few of the users I want to have this feature to smbpasswd
but  can't log in.
The critical switch is a map to guest, as soon as I switch it from bad user 
to anything else. I can't login at all.

obviously there is a problem with users.
I am trying to browse the share from WinXpSp2 in the same network
There is no domain - simple work group.
