[Samba] How to access a Linux share with NO password

I am trying to make a public share on my Linux machine
using Samba 3.0.10 for automatic setting of time by Windows 98 machines
using a batch file that will run in the wee hours.
My problem is the net use command always asks for a password
which doesn't work for an automatically run batch file.
The batch file lines run from windows are:
c:\windows\net use \\linda\public
c:\windows\net time \\linda /set /yes
Every time the "net use" line runs a password is asked for.
Although the password can be put in the batch file I'm reluctant to do that.
It seems as though if I access linda (linux machine) and give it
a password, that works unless I've rebooted either machine or re-started
My public share is world readable and looks like:
comment = Public Stuff
path = /public
read only = No
guest only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
Can anyone give me some advice?
