You need to use the smbpasswd program to allow users to use the system
unless you define a "guest" user.  Since you got samba working you may
want to try getting swat working too.  swat is a configuration/management
tool for samba.  I know nothing about the PASE environment so I have no
idea how hard this would be.

To add a public space for testing try this in smb.conf:

        comment = Public user space
        read only = No
        browseable = Yes
        path = /home/samba

Make /home/samba world readable and away you go.
