I am a newbie to samba, and here is my samba config file. I am hoping to get confirmation that there is no security holes here and if I have it setup right. The user I have the guest account mapped to is the main user on the server, however I am hoping this creates no issues as it is also the user name on my netbook which I use to access the server. I am able to access the files easily on my netbook, but I suspect that might not be the case on any other computers in the house, on my girlfriends archlinux laptop the Server doesn't show up under "Network" in her file manager.
all looks ok but considering you intend for samba to be a media server you might want to refer to this thread:

good luck, have fun & welcome to the latest samba on Arch
