[Samba] Can't create files using Mac OSX Client against Samba
server on Debian Linux

So I have my Debian Linux (latest stable release) box setup as a Samba
server for my home LAN. What I'm trying to do is share a single directory
(not a home directory) to any/all computers on the LAN. I have several
Windwos client (a mix of Win9x, Win2000, and WinXP) as well as an iBook G3
running OSX 10.2.6.
This share works great from all of the Windows clients.
>From the iBook, I can read files without any issues. Where I run into
problems is when I try to drag-and-drop a file from the iBook to the Samba
share via the Finder GUI, I get the error message:
The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient
privileges for "filename".
I also am unable to create files on the share using File->Save from any
GUI-based apps (e.g. TextEdit).
Strangely enough, if I open a Terminal window on the OSX client, and cd to
the share (in /Volumes), I can copy/create/delete files to my heart's
I'm sure it must have something to do with those pesky resource files. In
my smb.conf file I have "hide dot files = no", and "hide files" and "veto
files" are undefined. For kicks, I also tried enabling "map system", "map
hidden", and "map archive" to no avail.
Any more suggestions?
