I am trying to implement a simple Samba server on a Slackware 10.1 machine 
running for a bunch of Windows users that also have unix accounts on the 
machine. Using webmin, I did convert the unix users to samba users. A 
possible problem is that I have very little experience using windows, so 
please be patient with me.

I want them to have read and write permissions only in /home/<username>. How 
does one accomplish this ?

O/p of smbclient -L localhost -U% :

 Domain=[MOLECTRON] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.10]

        Sharename       Type      Comment
        ---------       ----      -------
        IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba Server on Molectron)
        ADMIN$          IPC       IPC Service (Samba Server on Molectron)
 Domain=[MOLECTRON] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.10]

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------
        MOLECTRON            Samba Server on Molectron

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
