[Samba] accessing share directories

I have a question in regards setting up access to users own directories with no RW access to another user's directory.

I am running Solaris 10 Express X86 I have read a few How To's and follow their suggestions but if I use the basic smb config both of users can see and access their directories meaning each others which is not good. I just want root in the Solaris box to be able to RW both directories.

Now when I tried to use a configuration a bit more close to what I want to have using as valid users the login ID's and security set to user instead of share then neither user can't logon, it ask for the user ID and password and it comes back with the error message of not enough access resources when the users are valid in both of the Windows and unix including the SAMBA. users ID's had been added to Samba password DB.

Another issue I have is with the printer share I am able to see it but from windows but I can connect either.

I am running a standalone server, home usage only using workgroup not a domain.

Thank you very much for your help, if you have a working smb.conf file that I can use please let me know.
