When logged in as root I do the following chown command:
chown CAD:CAD -R /dos
I get a message the says: "operation not permitted"
The current owner is root and current group for /dos is root. I have also tried to do chmod 666/dos and get the same results.
The second problem related to the first somewhat; I have samba3 installed on this machine with the following smb.conf file:
