My samba box is working perfectly as planned, i have 2 shares one with 
public acess, no username no password.. and that is working..

my problem is my "admin" share.. with is actually one directory above the 
public share, that i want read/write access to by anyone that knows the 

i've read everything i can find, share-level security was definately the 
best choice.. but my admin share wont let anyone in..

it pops up a login box with /NAMEOCOMP/Guest greyed out in the username 
field.. and no matter what password we try it isnt working..

heres my smb.conf


#======================= Global Settings =======================

   workgroup = WORKGROUP
#  netbios name = netbios name %h
   server string =
   security = share

   hosts allow = 192.168.2.

  guest account = public
   invalid users = root
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
  username map = /etc/samba/users.txt
#======================= Share Definitions =======================
   path = /data/
   username = god
   only user = yes

    read only = no
    force user = public
    guest ok = yes
    path = /data/public


my users.txt looks like:

public = *
god = bob, andy, tim

thanx in advance
