Unable to delete files from Windows

Ok I am a little rusty with Linux. I currently share files between FC4 and Win Xp. I can read/write and delete files on the Win box while I am logged into the FC computer but I cant delete files when I am in XP connecting to FC. I use webmin so I looked around and for the HDD that I store files in under FC, I set the permissions to 777 and user as nobody. I still cannot delete files from XP. What am I overlooking?

****ok, I figured it out...guess I wasnt too rusty....

Oh ya sorry.....

The strange thing was, I was able to delete from one Linux partition but not the other. I compared both samba setups and noticed two differences. The mask on the partition I was able to delete from was set to 555 and I had "force user" set w/my FC login name (not sure if this really did anything). Once I made the changes to the other partition, I am now able to delete FC files while logged into XP...
