Samba write permission


I just set up an old box as a Samba server (OS is DamnSmallLinux). I can read all the files from it on my XP machine. But I can't write to it, and I'm not sure why.
Here's the smb.conf file:

# 1. Server Naming Options:
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
#server string = machina

# 3. Logging Options:
# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50

# Set the log (verbosity) level (0 <= log level <= 10)
log level = 10

# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those documents
# Encrypted passwords are required for any use of samba in a Windows NT domain
# The smbpasswd file is only required by a server doing authentication, thus
# members of a domain do not need one.
#
# KEEP THIS UNCOMMENTED
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

# Configure remote browse list synchronisation here
# request announcement to, or browse list sync from:
# a specific host or from / to a whole subnet (see below)
; remote browse sync = 192.168.0.0 192.168.0.200
# Cause this host to announce itself to local subnets here
remote announce = 192.168.0.255

# 8. File Naming Options:
# 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 = yes
preserve case = yes

# Enabling internationalization:
# you can match a Windows code page with a UNIX character set.
# Windows: 437 (US), 737 (GREEK), 850 (Latin1 - Western European),
# 852 (Eastern Eu.), 861 (Icelandic), 932 (Cyrillic - Russian),
# 936 (Japanese - Shift-JIS), 936 (Simpl. Chinese), 949 (Korean Hangul),
# 950 (Trad. Chin.).
# UNIX: ISO8859-1 (Western European),
# ISO8859-2 (Eastern Eu.),
# ISO8859-5 (Russian Cyrillic), KOI8-R (Alt-Russ. Cyril.)
# This is an example for french users:
client code page = 850
character set = ISO8859-1

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writable = yes



Any help here?

P.S. Does it matter that the home directory on the Samba box that I'm accessing from XP is in ext2 format?

No, ext2 won't matter but remember that file/directory permissions set in Samba don't override the permissions on the actual computer.
