Default Allow anonymous access to SAMBA

I followed the HowTo located at

I am using a DOS boot disk loaded over PXE to boot a system, connect to a share, launch GHOST and unpack the GHOST file.

But my DOS machine isn't connecting to the SAMBA share, it tells me Error 5: Access has been denied.

My smb.conf contains:
        workgroup = PMI
        server string = %h server
        obey pam restrictions = no
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        pam password change = Yes
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword$
        unix password sync = Yes
        syslog = 0
        security = group
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        dns proxy = No
        wins server =
        wins server =
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        encrypt passwords = no

        comment = Ghost share
        path = /usr/share/ghostshare
        valid users = ghost
        force group = users
        create mask = 0555
        directory mask = 0555
        writeable = yes
I've been googling this for a couple of days and can't seem to hit on what the issue is.

Thanks to everyone for taking a look at my problem and for any potential suggestions.
