the perms are correct.

Mounting the samba share I get access-denied errors for any
create/modification operation, smbstatus shows me logging in with an account
on the "admin users" list for that share.
Connecing to the SAME share via smbclient and THE SAME ACCOUNT give me full
read write access.

Windows machines have no trouble sharing files with each-other. Windows 98
and 2k clients can READ from this share , but get unusual errors when
creating  files/folders. (And the operations fail)

An older samba 2.0.x server is having ZERO problems on the same lan with a
similar configuration.  I even copied my config settings from the broken
samba server to the old one and they worked FINE.
I'm going to see if its a fault with the libacl on my servers, (version 2.0.9)
