[Samba] Strange behaviour with shares

I have recently discovered a rather strange happening with regards to
shares on one of our servers.
A user wanted to access a folder on our public directory and typed in
the following in their explorer:
What happened then is the strange part: they came face-to-face with the
root folder of the server!
I'm not an expert and the shares were set up by a techie who has since
left the company, so I couldn't ask him what he had done.
Here is a snippet of the samba.conf file that pertains to the above share:
path = /shares/share
read only = No
create mask = 0777
force create mode = 0777
directory mask = 0777
force directory mode = 0777
guest only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
As I said, I am not an expert, but the create mask, directory mode, etc
seem a little strange to me.
Our samba server version is 3.0.23a-1
If anyone has any suggestions or needs any further information with
regards to this, please let me know.
I would hate to think that I have a broken server implementation here.
(Although I wouldn't be too surprised!)
