Ok, I tested yours and Michael Woods' recommendation to set 'security =
user' and 'map to guest = bad password'. I also googled and read about it.

And yes, it now works both on XP and Ubuntu. When I click on the restricted
share it asks for a password (this also happened with the earlier config),
only that this times it really logs me in. Earlier I had to create a mapped
networked driver with credentials for it to work.


Thanks for your help guys. Will definitely remember this config option.
