I have a fedora core 6 linux server that I am trying to set up a samba share on.  The rest of the computers on my network are running windows XP with all of the latest patches.  I am running a domain called nissley for my network.

I decieded to set up a samba share with user security because it appears to be the easiest to set up that still has security assocated with it.

I am able to connect to the samba share and browse the files but I can not copy anything to the share.  I am able to copy files from my samba share to my XP computer.  The user that is trying to copy files to the share is part of the group assinged to the directory the share is pointed to.

Here is my smb.conf file.  Any assisance would be apprecited.
workgroup = nissley
netbios name = MythTV Box
server string = MythBox
security = user
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 150
local master = no
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
encrypt passwords = yes

        comment = Home Directories
        browseable = no
        writeable = yes

        comment = movies
        path = /video/movies
        writeable = yes
        read only = No
