In my [global] I have guest account = nobody and security = user, and in
my share [wpkg] I have:

comment = Windows Packager
path = /samba/wpkg
read only = yes
browseable = no
guest ok = Yes
guest only = no
# valid users = guest nobody
map to guest = Bad User

still asks me for a username and password.  if i set security = share it
works, but then I have other problems with my windows xp computers
