Are your windows machines part of the 'WORKGROUP' workgroup ?
Does 'work' exist as a Unix user ?
Does 'work' exist as a windows user ?
Is the password for 'work' the same everywhere ?
From 'man smb.conf':
map to guest (G)
Bad User - Means user logins with an invalid password are
rejected, unless the username does not exist, in which case it
is treated as a guest login and mapped into the guest
Does 'work' have access to /var/lib/samba/printers ?
