Default Samba global share

Hi,
I want to use Samba to create a network share that is accessible to all Windows machines on the network, without the need for a password. Just one big folder that people can easily dump things in and retrieve them anywhere.

Whenever I execute /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba start, it seems to go okay, but then in actuality there is no smbd or nmbd. Here is my config file:
Code:
[global]

   workgroup = HOME
   server string = Samba Server
   security = user
   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.
   load printers = no
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 50
   interfaces = 192.168.1.1/24
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   wins support = yes
   wins proxy = yes
   dns proxy = no

[public]
   comment = Public Stuff
   path = /usr/home/ecorazeni/Share
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no
Code:
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba start
Removing stale Samba tdb files:  done
$ ps ax | grep smbd
$
$ ps ax | grep nmbd
$
The directory specified there, /usr/home/ecorazeni/Share, is chmod 777. Any ideas?

Oops, I forgot the rcvars in rc.conf. The server is up and running now. However, no other machines on the network can access it. I tried entering \\192.168.1.16 in the run window of a Windows, but there it asks for a password. How do I make it not ask for a password?

Edit: From the local machine:
Code:
$ smbclient -L //192.168.1.16/public
Password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
It should not be asking for a password; this is a public share.

Update: Okay so now it is up and running, I had to add "only guest = yes" to the share.

Now the share still does not show under "Show network computers" in Windows. Does anyone know how to make this appear? I tried adding "netbios name=freebsd" to the [general] section but still no dice.
