My config file included "read only = no", isn't that the same?

The problem is that the share is a directory on a mounted FAT32 partition 
where I can't change the permissions. I'd suppose that was the problem if 
not just before reinstalling this had worked. You see, each few seconds, 
the line

[2003/08/05 21:02:39, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:pdb_getsampwnam(1369)
   unable to open passdb database.

is appended to my logfile and sometimes also

[2003/08/05 21:02:39, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(252)
   internet-pc ( couldn't find service styles

Now what is that database and where is the connection to my problem? I may 
read, but not write...
