With CentOS 6.3 and Samba 3.6.23 I now have access to "security = share" which 
is what I wanted.

Unfortunately, it still doesn't work. When I try to connect to the new server 
using the WinXP and Win7 clients that are using the old server they just fail 
to connect.

I understand that the work-around you quote is how people are getting round 
the fact that share security doesn't work any more. However, I can't use that 
method as I need to retain password protection.
