Configure Samba so Android can mount media from PiBox Media Server

The ES File Explorer can operate as an Samba client. Since smbd/nmbd are running already on the media server, I just need to know how to configure them so Android can see them.
This will probably require some template setup that can be updated every time the network config changes.

Cool! Found a simple smb.conf file configuration that works perfectly with ES File Explorer on my Android phone to share media files from USB sticks on the PiBox Media Server. Woohoo!
Simplistic config is attached. Probably not secure but it's at least a working prototype. It will be pushed upstream shortly.
This file is being added to the skeleton directory for the PiBox Development Platform. It exposes /media as read-only for all guests.

Before closing this out I thought I'd note some links I reviewed to configure smb.conf.
