It still sounds like a permissions problem from the Unix end -- nothing
to do with Samba.
Try, as an experiment:
mount -t vfat -o umask=0 /dev/hdb1 /mnt/dosD
What you probably really want is something like
mount -t vfat -o umask=2,gid=XXX /dev/hdb1 /mnt/dosD
where XXX is the numeric group number for the group of users to which
you want to give write access to your DOS partition.
> /dev/hdb1 /mnt/dosD vfat noexec,nodev,nosuid,rw 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/dosD vfat umask=113,gid=XXX 1 1
Note that `nodev,nosuid' are unnecessary for `vfat', `rw' is already
the default, and `noexec' is implied by `umask=113'.
