[Samba] How to access a 'guest ok' share from Windows without password?

I have a Slackware Linux box called Tillie with three shares.
All at /, user at /home/user and public at /public which is "guest ok" 
for access without a password.

The problem is that Tillie shows up in Windows Network Neighborhood as a 
single icon.  To open that icon and see the three shares Windows demands 
a password, thus making it impossible to access.

Is there any way to get around this?
