I can almost guarantee that it won't work for me.
E.g., I uncommented map to guest in the conf file, stopped and restarted samba, but a username/password are still required when connecting from the Windows machine.

That's because your current "pupshare" share does not have "guest" access. Add the following line to its smb.conf entry.
Code:
[pupshare]
....
guest ok = yes

No luck. Now Samba-login does not work on the puppy machine, and from the Windows machine I am told that pupshare on pupserver (or pupserver on pupshare) is not accessible.

security = user
map to guest = Bad Password
;printcap name = cups

[pupshare]
path = /mnt/home
writable = yes
guest ok = yes

[printers]
path = /tmp

Here is the rc.local file:
#version upgrade, any prior content of rc.local moved to /tmp/rc.local
pure-ftpd -zMbBADHk 90 -e -U 022:022

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.firewall start
fi
sleep 20
samba-start

Here are some tips for configuring Samba.

1. Power down your client machines while you are modifying the smb.conf.

2. Check the status of the server with the ps command.

3. Change one thing at a time.

Well, I've wasted enough time. Back to Windows. Thanks for your help.
