Both of these are related to NetBIOS naming problems. Need more info to
solve really... Try posting your smb.conf. Broadcast resolution isn't
working, but you've got at least some functionality as p-node resolution
(used when you type "net use") is OK.

Check that the share is set to read/write in smb.conf. Then check that
the Windows user attached to the share maps to a Unix user with
permissions to write files in that directory. Samba doesn't override
underlying filesystem permissions....
