Thanks man. That did the trick and I am happy.

pain to set up so it will work right.   I finally figured out how to 
set up SE and Samba so you can be able to write and delete files.

I found in one of that man pages "man samba_selinux", you can just 
disable SE for samba.   I am sure there are other ways also but this 
is what I have found so far.   I tried to just open SE to samba but 
that has not worked as of yet.   What does work is typing -
" setsebool -P smbd_disable_trans 1" - this disables SE for just 
samba then restart samba with - "service smb restart".  I have not 
found a way to just pass samba through SE as of yet with out 
disabling SE for the samba demon.
