first do a
in the folder where the smb.conf is located in.
And see what the permissions are:explaining the permissions
than compare with what you have and change if needed into
chmod u+r-wx smb.conf
and if that's not working, maybe it has to do something with that the user you are logged on is in a group wich can have writing permissions?!
