Samba on Fedora 10.10. Originator of docs "owns" it. Other users to share "save as"


Hi.

Winxp and Win7 - conencting to a Samba server.
Everything is working fine except for one thing .

To best explain this problem .........

Share name - "admin-public"

Everyone can access it.
Everyone can create new docs and edit / save them.
BUT - only the originator can edit / save.

Everyone else has read only access!

What to do?

Show the output of:

Code:
ls -ld /path/to/shared-directory
Try any of these two methods:

Code:
chmod 1744 /path/to/shared-directory
or

edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and under your [MyShares] put this line:

Code:
create mask = 0022/path/to/shared-directory
