Samba 3.0.7 running on Linux with a 2.4 kernel. Samba is acting as a PDC for a 
NT-style domain (non-AD). smb.conf for that share is:

         path = /share/skylinef
         valid users = @accounting,rgetter
         read only = No
         create mask = 0777
         directory mask = 0777

Nothing in the global section is relevant (all domain related). The Windows box 
is running XP Pro SP2.
