here is my samba configuration.
There are no passwords in use. 2 Folders are shared, one Read only, the other 
with write permissions.
#======================= Global Settings =====================================

# 1. Server Naming Options:
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = WSA_SBY

# netbios name is the name you will see in "Network Neighbourhood",
# but defaults to your hostname
  netbios name = MIHIRA

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = Samba Server %v

# 3. Logging Options:
# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
   max log size = 50

# 4. Security and Domain Membership Options:
# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page. Do not enable this if (tcp/ip) name resolution does
# not work for all the hosts in your network.
  hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.10. 127.

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
#  guest account = pcguest
# Allow users to map to guest:
  map to guest = bad user

# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
   security = share

# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those documents
# Encrypted passwords are required for any use of samba in a Windows NT domain
# The smbpasswd file is only required by a server doing authentication, thus
# members of a domain do not need one.
  encrypt passwords = yes
  smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

# The following are needed to allow password changing from Windows to
# also update the Linux system password.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' above.
# NOTE2: You do NOT need these to allow workstations to change only
#        the encrypted SMB passwords. They allow the Unix password
#        to be kept in sync with the SMB password.
;  unix password sync = Yes
# You either need to setup a passwd program and passwd chat, or
# enable pam password change
;  pam password change = yes
#  passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd '%u'
;  passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *Re*ype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n \

# Unix users can map to different SMB User names
;  username map = /etc/samba/smbusers

# Using the following line enables you to customise your configuration
# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting
#   include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

# 5. Browser Control and Networking Options:
# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See speed.txt and the manual pages for details
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a master
# browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules apply
   local master = no

# OS Level determines the precedence of this server in master browser
# elections. The default value should be reasonable
#   os level = 33

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this job
   domain master = no

# Preferred Master causes Samba to force a local browser election on startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the election
   preferred master = no

   dns proxy = no 

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes

   comment = Software Collection
   path = /data/downloads
   public = yes
   read only = yes
   guest ok = yes
   browseable = yes

   comment = Common Upload Folder
   path = /data/uploads
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   create mask = 777
   directory create mask = 777
   guest ok = yes
   browseable = yes

This is a working configuration. 
Try a No password method before attempting to use passwords.
