Samba - Combination of user and share level security?


I have a linux file server at my home, and I would like for all but one share to have general user access. I don't want anybody to need a username and password unless they get into my backup/archive share. When I have share level security, I can't protect that folder. When I have user level security, just browsing the server requires username and password.

Is there some happy medium where I can pw protect just one folder.

Here's an example clip from the smb.conf for each type of share:

This would be the private share.
Code:
[Backup]
        comment = Archive, don't touch!
        path = /mnt/maxtor/backup
        guest ok = no
        writable = yes
        printable = no
        write list = root
This would be the public share.
Code:
[Linux]
        comment = Linux distributions
        path = /shared/linux
        guest ok = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = no
I want all of my shares to show up when you browse the server, but only backup to require u/p to access.
