Samba - access denied on windows


I recently configured samba for my Fedora Core 4 fileserver. I have a share and when I try to write the share it says that access is denied.

The server is running Fedora Core 4 and my PC is Windows XP Pro SP2.

this is my smb.conf:

#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/log.smbd
max log size = 50


#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[Shared]
comment = Share
path = /samba/shared
read only = No
writeable = Yes
guest ok = Yes
public = Yes
browseable = Yes
create mask = 0666
directory mask = 0777

#=================directory permissions=========
777

look into your directoy mask....

I think your mask takes the already aplied 777, and masks it to be 000, (777 - 777), thus the name mask.
