samba share issue


I am running samba on my linux server. I am able to create a folder, but then I can't add anything into it (permissions denied) because the new folder was created by root (which is not the logged in user, that created it). How do I setup samba so that the user who creates it, is also the owner of it?

you ought to read tutorials or examples about usual settings - or please post your config to be able to help you to fix it.
In general it looks like (at least for me) the mount forces to use root account, but who knows?
