i'm using samba as a file print server on suse 7.3, clients are windoze

basic problem is that sometimes the files created from a windows client have
a ownership of root, this causes problems mainly with backup programs (as it
affects/prevents the unix - dos archive bit mapping) as I don't then own
it), i havn't set up a user root on the windows systems so how can this

btw if i set valid users to a set of user names this problem seems to go
away, can anybody advise why the 'root' name appears

as an aside how do i clear a username/password for a network share in
windoze, as just deleting the share doesn't seemd to do this.

thanks for any help
