Hello group,

I have Windows 2000 workstations and Linux 9 that runs applications and
file servers.

Samba is running and I see all shares on the Linux box.

What I need to do is give a certain directory a share as follows:

All users will be able to see, read and browse this directory.

Only an administrator user will be able to write/delete this directory.

This is how the share in the smb.conf looks like:


comment = mfgpro file server

path = /mfg

readonly = yes

public = yes


Thanks for your help,
