Samba Public Folder

Hi there,

How can i set in Samba´s folders that some folders will be under certain password and some folders will be Access free?

In the global settings i used security = user and to put it under password it was ok. But for the public folders it always ask for password. I tried to use security = share but than it makes problems and does not work how it should. What should i set correctly? Thanks
