Samba guests and changes in /etc/passwd

As in the title, I have one problem with guests in Samba file sharing. Well, I have changed smb.conf and put there:
guests ok = yes
But in comments it's said that choosing this feature I have to change something in /etc/passwd . So my question is following: what do I have to change there?
