Samba: Permision Denied!

When I try to create folder or move files from Windows to Linux share, I get Permission Denied. I use password to access Linux share! Heres my smb.conf:
workgroup = MYNET
invalid users = root


   path = /mnt/sda2
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   public yes
Whats wrong? Thank you!

Try adding "security = user" or "security = share" in your [global] section. Also, make sure the users you're wanting to have access to /mnt/sda2 actually have permissions to access /mnt/sda2.

Also, you need "public = yes" in your share definition.
