The easiest/simplest smb.conf i know how to make:

 workgroup = MYGROUP
  server string = Samba Server
  security = share
#============================ Share Definitions

        path = /stuff
        read only = No
        guest ok = yes

Leave everything else as is.
It works from version 3.0.20 to 3.0.28 (i haven't upgraded to 3.0.30 yet)
Linux and Win XP Pro clients can connect with no authentication of any kind.
XP Home should work too since this setup does not create a domain

Hope it works for you.
