My main problem is that I can't change the read-only attribute on a
directory (not a file) included in a Samba share from the properties
dialog box on any Windows workstation. There is not even an error
message, but depending of the OS (98, ME, NT4, 2K...), when I click on
Apply, either the tick goes, or when I reopen the dialog box, the tick
has gone. I checked the permissions and the directory (security) mask,
my configuration file is basic and I tried several versions of Samba.
(2.2.3a, 2.2.4). Of course, the user which connects has correct Unix

Here is my whole smb.conf file: 

   workgroup = ALCIDIAN
   encrypt passwords = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   create mask = 0700
   directory mask = 0700

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me.
