Samba OS X to Linux Samba file share error

I have setup a linux server with samba in order to share the two hard drives to the user "ttoomey" for both of my 2 other machines.

One machine running WINXP/Ubunutu dual boot and one running OS X (a dual processing G5)

I have been able to mount the network drives in windows and share with no problems whatsoever. Same goes for the Linux setup on the same computer, but on the OS X G5 I get an error when trying to drag and drop files onto the mounted network drives.

The drives mount just fine and I have it setup to mount at startup. The user/pass combination works and I can even drag 1 file at a time to these network drives on the linux machine, but after dragging that one file (which will show up and go through just fine) I get the error from OS X saying

"The operation could not be completed because you do not have sufficient priviledges for some of the items."

Now if I drag a folder, it will create the folder and then give that message, and if I drag 2 files it puts one and gives me that message, and if I drag one file it throws that error after putting the single file on there.

I can even delete the files that I put on there but for some reason I get that error whenever writing to the drives? Does anyone know what may cause this or if there is a work around?

I don't have much experience on OS X, but I used to have a similar error message when using WinSCP (Windows/*nix via SCP).

In that case, WinSCP tried to change the file's group or permissions (can't remember exactly which), but the user was not allowed to.

I suppose OS X first copies the first file or folder (which works), then tries to change permissions, which fails and ends up in an error message. Is there any settings dialog for this in OS X?
