I'm experimenting with Samba 2.2.7a in my home office-- all is well except
only I can open my Word files copied to our Samba share.

All other users can only open them "Read-only".

Please help me correct this.

Here's the smb.conf file:

    netbios name = Server01
    workgroup = TKG

    os level = 64
    preferred master = yes
    domain master = yes
    local master = yes

    encrypt passwords = Yes
    security = user
    domain logons = Yes
    logon path = \\%N\homes\share\profiles\%u
    logon drive = U:
    logon home = \\%N\homes\%u
    logon script = logon.bat

    path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
    read only = yes
    write list = ntadmin

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = no
    writable = yes
    guest ok = no
    read only = no

   comment = Server Share
   path = /home/share
   public = yes
   read only = no
   write list = @staff
