I am really trying to get the easiest samba setup working without any luck.
I just want to create a share anyone can access without username/password.
[root at redhat-test ~]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"

        workgroup = ACNEU
        realm = EU.ACNCORP.COM
        server string = %h
        interfaces = lo, eth0
        security = SHARE
        password server =
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        local master = No
        wins server =

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No

        comment = Shared Folder for guests
        path = /home/Guest/share
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

My shared folder is there
[root at redhat-test ~]# ls -ail /home/Guest/
6520842 drwxrwxrwx 2 nobody root  4096 Jul 25 16:23 share

But i get this in the logs when i try to access it:
[2008/07/25 17:23:43, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1003)
  '/home/Guest/share' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to
[guest] Error was Permission denied

iptables is off, selinux is off.
