Firstly (if you can) use Samba 2.2.8a, as it is the latest in the 2.x

I can't see anything obviously wrong with your setup, but I would
suggest you turn the log level up to 3, restart samba, then try to do
the same file access and see if the logs tell you anything more. It's
worth checking the Unix user(s) that samba users is connecting with and
seeing if they actually have permission in Unix to write to the files in
