samba not giving me write access


Hey all,

I recently installed samba and configured it as such:
Code:
[global]
        
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        netbios name = CYPRUS

        server string = whatever

        security = share

[SDR]   
        comment = school
        path = /home/gnychis/school/SDR
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = yes
        writable = yes
I have specified writable, and I can see, list, and read from the directory in windows... however I cannot write what so ever. It keeps saying "Access is denied"

any ideas?

Thanks!
George

i had to turn off guest, and add a valid user with smbpasswd and alias it... instructions are at the bottom of the gentoo-wiki page for samba:

in your linux you type: chmod 755 /home/gnychis/school/sdr
try again!
