First off I want to thank everyone who is working and contributing to
Samba. I have installed FreeBSD on a Pentium PC and have compiled samba
with gcc. I have it working and can post shares of printers and drives
but have ran into a problem. I read through the documentation several
times and can't seem to find the answer. When I open a document for any
Windows-based Apps and try to save it. Windows reports back with an
error. Stating it cannot save the file. I have a feeling it is because
samba have set the attribute to Deny_write. I was wondering (1) if this
is what is happening (2) is there something I can do to allow users the
ability to save their documents once the open it with the same name.
All the users have UNIX accounts and their passwords and usernames are
