samba and msoffice

if there is anybody that installed msoffice on a samba share, then
I have a question for you (if you're willing to answer them...):

 are there any special permissions I need to set? I installed
 msoffice on a share and when I quit Word 97, it comes back with
 an error that it can't write to \\share\msoffice\off. When I press
 cancel and try to quit again, it tries to save my file.
 Any suggestions?

thanks for the help,
