Samba access without password (like win98)

I have a small, home lan where i want to use a public samba share as a local file-server.  I got nmbd working, and I see the box in 'network neighborhood', but when i open it (the box) it asks for a password, much like nt shares do.  What I want is it to not ask for passwords at all (realizing the security implecations).

So, how do I set up samba to not prompt for passwords?

but then i still have to add users for samba.
Is there a way to just turn off authentication all together?
