[Samba] Problems with Access Control for Shares on Samba 2

I think if you want only one user to be able to write, but any user to be able to access you should change things as follows:
comment = hobbit5
path = /ALPHA-DATA/hobbit5
browseable = yes
read only = no
guest = ok
write list = hobbit5
The valid users parameter before said that ONLY hobbit5 could access the share. If you don't specify anything for valid users, the default behavior is that any user can access the share.
