Making a user for more than one person to use how?


Hey everyone, I'm running ubuntu 9.10 server 32 bit on a computer here at my dorms. I want to have a samba share that I can let other friends access but only want to have one username and password that they can all use like "guest" or "friend" or something. How do I go about doing this? What do my samba share properties need to look like and how do I make the account etc?

Thanks in advance!

-MJ

Note: I do need to make it possible for more than one of them to connect at a time.

Just create a user like normal, set a password, and give out that password?
