Samba config for sharing MP3's

Please help

I'm trying to set up a share so that I can store and share mp3's from Linux to XP.
In XP I can see the folder OK in Network Neighborhood but cant write anything to it What am I doing wrong??

The config I have looks like this:

netbios name = Linux Box
security = share
workgroup = WORKGROUP
encrypt passwords = true
hosts allow =
hosts deny =

path = /mpthree
public = yes
read only = no
write list = gavin

What are the permissions on the Linux side of the directory? If you are mounting the drive to XP by user permissions then that user must have permissions on the Linux side.
