If you don't want anyone to write to it then set root as the owner and chmod
it 644 or something similar.  
Let me know if you need anything else,

Subject: [Samba] SUQ: Share permissions

After parsing through the various bits of available documentation, I'm
forced to bow before the group and ask the following Silly User Question:

While I can create and set NT ACLs on files/folder, anything in the root of
the share can be deleted by any user who has access to that share.  I've
munged something in my file permissions.  What /should/ the file permissions
for a root share directoy be set to, and who should own it - root, a created
'samba' user..?


        path = /mnt/share/backup 
        valid users = @"DEAD\Puppies" 
        read only = No 

What UNIX account should own /mnt/share/backup, and what should the UNIX
file permissions be set to?
