Configuring Samba for my Network


I am new to Mandrake 10.0
When I'm trying to change the name of the workgroup in the "smb.conf" file and save it, I get an error.

"The document could not be saved, as it was not possible to write to file:/etc/samba/smb.conf.
Check that you have write access to this file or that enough disc space is available."

Well, I know I have enough disk space and I am the only user on here.

Please help.

You need to be logged in as root to modify files located in the /etc directory.
