	Having 'security = share' should give you the impression
of having a Win9X on your network. I don't know how WinXP reacts
to that, but it should work quite well.

	No, without the logs it is really hard to understand
what is going on. If you want a public writeable directory,
it should be one of the easiest configurations of Samba. Maybe
you should read the Samba by Example and the first steps of
Samba Official HOWTO to get in line exactly what you want and
how you want.

	What changed from your old smb.conf? And why the changes?

	So... you still should do the "Right Thing (tm)" and do not
map the root as a guest user. :-)
