Hi Chris, thanks and just three short questions:

1) The Linux local user "guest" must be added to samba with "smbpasswd
-a guest" ???

2) The Windows XP desktops must have a guest account enable named
"guest", or it can be named "Invited" or "Invitado" (Spanish Windows
version) ???

3) What owner and group must have the share /var/share ???

Thanks a lot,
