fedora not sharing printers / files through samba properly?

Hi, I am running FC2, and I have set up samba, to an extent. This is a configuration similar to what I've had before, yet my windows computers, and even this computer, cannot access shares on this system even with SECURITY = SHARE, it still prompts for a password .

I've pretty much ran out of ideas to do this, and if anyone has had this problem and could point me in the proper direct I would be greatly grateful.
Here is my smb.conf
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
server string = Samba Server
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127. 192.168.0.
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
load printers = yes
# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
; guest account = pcguest
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
Security = SHARE
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = no
#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
template shell = /bin/false
password server = None
guest ok = yes
winbind use default domain = no
public = yes
browseable = yes
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = yes
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
printable = yes
guest ok = yes
# This one is useful for people to share files

Your configuration file looks OK, maybe this is an iptables (firewall) issue.
service iptables stop
then try to reconnect.
