[Samba] Mess-Windows dumbness...

I changed the Samba security mode from share to user and added a couple
of users to allow some writable shares.  Now the MS-Windows machines are
insisting on a username/password to access the *anonymous* (guest ok =
yes) printers and the one read-only public file system.  How do I fix
this? Do I *have* to configure a real-live guest user? Is there a way to
allow some file systems anonymous access *without* a username/pasword
and some file system write access with a username/password?  Or is
mess-windows too stupid to handle this?
