[Samba] Problems with "hide dot files" and "write list" options

I run samba 2.2.3a on FreeBSD 4.3 box. My smb.conf is

   workgroup = INSTALL
   server string = INSTALL
   hosts allow = 172.16. 127.
   load printers = no
   log file = /var/log/log.%m
   max log size = 5
   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   local master = no
   domain master = no
   preferred master = no
   client code page=850

   comment = Installation
   path = /HOME1/INSTALL
   browsable = no
   write list = writer

All users should have read access to inst but only the user
readerwriter should have read/write access. And all dot files should
be hidden.

When I run testparm I get from the [global] section the default values

        read only = Yes
        hide dot files = Yes

and from the [inst] section:

        comment = Installation
        path = /HOME1/INSTALL
        write list = readerwriter
        browseable = No

But the user readerwriter may not write to the share. And I see all
dot files.

Anything wrong with the smb.conf? Thanks in advance.

PS: I'm new to this list, I hope this is no FAQ.
