Samba shares/permissions

Rather embarrassed to askÖ Iím having issues with share permissions on Samba & Suse 10.2. Iím trying to share directories so that "Domain Users" can read them, but canít write to them... I just canít seem to do it.... DOH!!

Not sure if this might be related, but when I try to access a share that "Domain Users" donít have permissions to, I get the normal login box, but I canít even log in as a user with permissions ("Domain Admins")!! I can access the shares when I log in as an "Domain Admin" user, but not when I enter the credentials into the login box.

A copy of my smb.conf...

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Well I cannot really help but I got some idea of that the Samba system is quite self-relying and separate system; thus in case there are other permission settings in the ordinary file systems that Samba acts upon, could it be some interaction between the two systems generating unexpected "net" file permissions?

It cant see it being file system permissions. While testing I set the owner, group and other permissions to rwx for everyone.
