Network public samba share


I'm having problems setting up samba to make a share that id like to have running for my network. The home Dir is working fine based on the login info i give it but i cant get this other one to work.

The debian box itself has a large drive in it which id like to use as a filestore for the other machines on the network, win2k desktop and winxp laptop. Id like to make a dir /share (yes, in root) which has anonymous access to everyone, read and write. After looking round many tutorial sites i cant find an example that matches this one so I'm a bit stuck.

If you need this info:
debian account is "imaboyo"
winxp account is "matthew" ( tho i want it accessible to any username )

What i need is the share info to put into smb.conf, who to make the owner of /share and any chmod details for that dir.

Thanks for the help
