samba on Solaris 10 x86

I have a Solaris 10 x86 system with IP I enabled samba on it already. On my Windows XP computer (, I have two test users, John Doe and jdoe

How can I set up samba so that any Windows users can mount network drives
from the Solaris onto the PC? Currently, when I am on the PC, and run \\
It always asks for user name and password.
If possible, I don't want to have to type in a user name and password
every time my PC mounts a network drive from the Solaris to my PC
when my PC first logs in. Thanks.

This is what my smb.conf file looks like:

#======================= Global Settings =====================================

workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
security = user
hosts allow = 192.168.1.
log file = /var/samba/log/log.%m
max log size = 50

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================

comment = drives
path = /export/home/user1/drives
force user = user1
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
