Thank you for your compliments, ledow, you are mostly correct on your criticisms. However, it's unfair to say that this is worse than NFS. As a point of comparison, consider the LTSP case:
clients NFS mount as root read-only with no authentication the /opt/ltsp/i386 directory as their root file system
Now consider the Safedesk STS case:
clients CIFS mount as root read-only with no authentication the /var/live/chroot directory as their root file system
As you can see, they are virtually identical.
However, I 100% agree that the need to put the "map to guest =" in the [global] section is a sad limitation of Samba and I hope that version 4 will solve this problem and allow the administrator to do such a change on a share-wise basis.
