Hi all, hope this has not been asked and answered,

I can not seem to set the read-only flag when I right click on a file and
select properties from in Windows XP. It look like it work but if I go
back in it is unchecked. I have the same issue weather I am the owner of
the file or not.

I am using Fedora Core 1 with Samba 3.0.2 ( the one from the care install
with all updates applied) I am using the posix acl patch on a custom
2.4.25 kernel.

Is there a setting I am missing I have included the global section of my
conf file and the one share I am testing with. Oddly enough the archive is
set but can not be unset.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
