Question Public Samba share

I need to setup a public share on my samba server and I can't figure out which settings to use in my smb.conf file.

I don't wan't to have to create the 300+ user accounts on my samba server just to give people read only access to the systems.

The client PC's will be using Windows 95, 98, 2000, and XP.

Most of our user accounts now are in Novell NDS so I don't have the option of using NT domain authentication.

Can anyone give me a sample smb.conf file that will create a public share that does not require each user to have a unix login entered in to smbpasswd?
