What version of samba are you running and on what OS?
What type of setup do you have on you samba server? Standalone? Domain
member? PDC?

Try changing 
  valid users = pierre, wendy
  write list = pierre, wendy

  valid users = +pierre, +wendy
  write list = +pierre, +wendy

And see if it works. The "+" lets samba know that it is a local unix

Hi guys

My client is really bugging me to get this working.
I create a folder called "private" and added this into my smb.conf file,
but when i browse to the folder "private" using wendy or pierre i  get
access denied.  soneone told me i must make sure the filesystem of the
folder private is set to nobody. Is that correct and how will i go on by
doing this.

  writeable = yes
  public = no
  guest ok = no
  path = /home/samba/private
  valid users = pierre, wendy
  write list = pierre, wendy
  force user = nobody
