You have to set the path correctly.

Look at how I setup my share (http://www.hammondslegacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=267&sid=26bc981e6c87515798fa19c7bf764929#p267)

You need to set it like I did. security = user

The guest ok = yes allows them to access the share without a user ID.

It is also good for security and stability of your server if you share a partition that is separated from your root. That way you can have a certain amount of space set aside for those files and filling it up will not bring the server to its knees (filling the root partition is bad).
