Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a Fedora box which is sharing out a directory from the second hard drive (/deb/hdb) with Samba. My network is a fairly large peer-to-peer consisting primarily of Win2k boxes but a couple 98's are floating around.
I'm aware of the dangers of a wide-open network drive however for now, that's not a concern.
What I'm seeing is the 2k boxes can access all files and all directories but they can't delete files. In addition 98 boxes can navigate all directories but can't open any file for editing.
Can anybody please offer a suggestion how to allow RWX for both client OS's? Here is my smb.conf file:
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = work
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = F Drive Samba Server
hosts allow = 10.168.5. 127. 192.168.0.10
guest account = samba
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
# Case Preservation can be handy - system default is _no_
# NOTE: These can be set on a per share basis
; preserve case = no
; short preserve case = no
# Default case is normally upper case for all DOS files
; default case = lower
# Be very careful with case sensitivity - it can break things!
; case sensitive = no
