TIP: Share local folder like windows

Don't undertstand why, but some of us want to share a local folder like they do in the windows environment. Full rights, no authentication required. The MS Workgroups way of working?
Here it is:
mkdir /public
chmod 2777 /public

sample of my /etc/smb.conf

netbios name = moosy
workgroup = workgroup
server string = The Moosy laptop

use client driver = yes
security = share
wins support = no

path = /public
browseable = yes
writable = yes
public = yes

[start or restart the deamon]
/etc/init.d/smb start

PS Make sure you browse happy
