Samba can create new files and folders but access denied in any new folders

Samba 3.0.20

Mandriva client running SMB4K and Konqueror
Can access server can map (mount) a drive to an all users share I created.
Can create, modify, delete files or folders in the root of that shared folder.
But if create a new folder in that share and then try to create anything in the new folder get access denied

Hi K.King,

Maybe try checking the permissions on the new folder, if you want to give people who access the folder via SAMBA full access, you'll need to do a 'chmod 777 [name of folder]' in the parent directory of said folder.

Anyways, just a thought. Not sure if you've already checked that out.
